You can truly become one with nature

Born a Jew?
Burial takes you full circle.
No matter how “Jewishly” a person lived their life, choosing Jewish burial declares:
I am a Jew. And I choose to be buried as a Jew.
I choose this for the sake of my ancestors.
I choose this for the sake of my descendants.
I choose this for the sake of my body.
And I choose this for the sake of my soul.
