Funeral services for Joan Rivers will be Sunday at Temple Emanu-El in New York City, the synagogue said. Details, including what time services would be held and whether the public would be admitted, weren't immediately disclosed.

Rivers, a member of the Reform congregation, died Thursday at age 81, said her daughter, Melissa Rivers. in her 2012 book "I Hate Everyone ... Starting With Me," Joan Rivers wrote that she wanted her funeral to be "a huge showbiz affair with lights, cameras, action. I don't want some rabbi rambling on; I want Meryl Streep crying, in five different accents. ... And I want a wind machine so that even in my casket my hair is blowing just like Beyonce's."
