"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?
