Death, Natural Burial, and Jewish Tradition
Monday, November 18, 7 PM
At Baltimore Hebrew Congregation
Open to all
Come learn more about this ancient and yet modern practice with Shelley Morhaim and David Zinner.
Baltimore Hebrew Congregation is in the forefront on this issue, one of only a handful of Maryland cemeteries that are offering this option. Natural burial is a growing movement around the country, and it is a practice that has a long history in Jewish tradition. People are drawn to it for both environmental and spiritual reasons.
Natural burial is done without embalming, with no concrete liner in the ground, and with a simple all-wood casket.
