  1. Well if she would have been buried in traditional manner this wouldn’t be a problem now would it…..

  2. You guys don’t understand: she HATED sour cream and onion.
    If it were only a can of Barbecue Flavor, the family wouldn’t be so up in arms…

  3. This is the most bizarre story I’ve ever read. What kind of a Jew has their loved on cremated and then stored in a shul ?
    While I certainly feel bad for the family involved, there is probably more to this story than meets the eye.

  4. Jews believe in ‘tehiat hametim’ – resurrection of the dead – whether you might like it or not. It’s in numerous parts of the daily services. Cremation is pretty much the most wicked thing you could do to a Jew.
