    End of life issues are always the most difficult to face. Making decisions can be very overwhelming. Having a clarity can help it done with more ease.

    Throughout history, societies have adopted varying approaches to dealing with corpses. Some have buried them in the ground and some have cremated them. Others sealed them away in elaborate mausoleums with food and drink, mummified them, left them for the vultures, cannibalized them and done the unthinkable to the bodies of their loved ones. Presumably, most people simply followed their neighbors’ example in deciding what method to choose.

    Since the very beginning of the Jewish people thousands of years ago, although many options were available, Jews have always insisted on burial.

    Until recently.

    Today, mirroring the developments in Western society, at least 30 percent of Jewish deaths in North America and Europe are followed by cremations, and the percentage is on the rise.

    What is the cause of cremation’s increasing popularity? What are reasons for cremation vs burial? Is it something to consider? Is Jewish burial the only option?

    Bring your questions and concerns. This is your chance to present this before one of the biggest professionals in the field.
