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. Baltimore Hebrew Congregation is in the forefront on this issue, one of only a handful of Maryland cemeteries that are offering this option. Come learn more about this ancient and yet modern practice on Monday, November 18, 7 pm with Shelley Morhaim and David Zinner.
Shelley Morhaim is a board member of the Green Burial Association of Maryland, a nonprofit that works to educate about and support opportunities for natural burials in Maryland. David Zinner is the executive director of K’vod v’Nichum, a nonprofit with national membership that provides resources, education, and training along the Jewish end-of-life continuum.
