The funeral for Joan Rivers will take place Sunday in New York at the Temple Emanu-El in Manhattan, confirms the temple's rabbi.
"We mourn with her family, friends and all those millions to whom she brought laughter and joy," Rabbi Joshua M. Davidson told ABC News in a statement. The rabbi did not divulge other details.
The comedian died Thursday at 81 after spending a week in hospital. She had been unconscious after suffering cardiac arrest during a routine medical procedure, an endoscopy. The clinic is now under investigation by the state health department.
Her daughter, Melissa Rivers, confirmed earlier this week that her mother had been on life-support.
On Friday, flowers and messages continued to collect on the steps of Rivers’s Upper East Side apartment building.
Rivers — who once said that “a funeral is just a red carpet show for dead people” — described the kind of funeral she wanted in her 2012 book, I Hate Everyone …Starting With Me.
“I want paparazzi and I want publicists making a scene! I want it to be Hollywood all the way,” she wrote.
“I want Meryl Streep crying, in five different accents. I don’t want a eulogy.…I want to look gorgeous, better dead than I do alive. I want to be buried in a Valentino gown, I want Harry Winston to make me a toe tag. I want a wind machine so strong that even in the casket, my hair will be blowing more than Beyonce’s on stage.”
