Topic: Sacred Ground: A History of Jewish Burial Practices
What do we consider burial in a Jewish context? Do we consider our burial grounds ‘sacred’ and if so, why? What are some of our beliefs – historical and/or present day about death and the relationships the living and the dead have with each other? How have our beliefs changed how we “house” our dead? I try to address these and other questions about the holiness of what we will all experience – death and loss.
