CREMATION OR BURIAL?

 

 

 

 

What's the importance of a burial?

It's a mitzvah! It's a commandment in our religion. The Torah clearly states that a Jew must be buried no matter the level of observance.

 

Why choose a Jewish burial?

We have a responsibility to our loved ones towards their memory and Neshama (Soul) of the deceased.

 

Complete the circle of life

The natural way is to be put gently back into the ground and not violently cremated and scattered to the wind.

 

What is more environmently friendly?

The cremation process from an energy and polution standpoint is not environmently friendly as opposed to a Jewish burial.
