"Cremation and Jewish Tradition" with Rabbi Menachem Creditor
"Cremation and Jewish Tradition"
with Rabbi Menachem Creditor
Presented on behalf of the Congregation Netivot Shalom Chevrah Kaddisha on 2/13/13
What is the status of cremation in Jewish tradition? What is a rabbi's role & a community's responsibility when cremation happens in a Jewish community? What significance does the Holocaust have in the question? Is Jewish Law absolute? Does compassion make saying "no" impossible to hard emotional questions?
May we learn from the destructive leadership of Korach to disagree like mentches, to see debate as a healthy thing neighbors can do.
