Cremation vs Burial
Life is full of opportunities to show someone we love them. One such opportunity is the funeral or memorial service. Such a loving event celebrates the choices they made, the relationship you shared, and honors the memory of your loved one.
Fewer than 18% of Jewish families choose cremation. However, if a family decides on cremation, the service may take place at a chapel, graveside, or reform temple. Burial of cremated remains is permitted at Sharon Memorial Park; The Independent Pride Cemetery on Baker Street in West Roxbury; and the Beit Olam East Cemetery in Wayland.
