Elizabeth Taylor being buried Thursday

By Sean O’Connell One day after Elizabeth Taylor passed away in Los Angeles’ Cedar-Sinai hospital, the iconic actress and celebrity is set to be buried according to the practices of her faith, it is being reported.

Taylor converted to Judaism “for her marriages to Mike Todd and Eddie Fisher,” People notes, so the actress’s family is “following the rules of the religion [about] being buried soon after her death.”

A funeral will be held today, Thursday, at Forest Lawn in Glendale, CA. The ceremony will be reserved for family members of the 79-year-old star.

People reports that a public memorial for Taylor “will take place at a later date.”
