PostSubject: A question on burial practice   Thu Sep 11, 2008 2:57 pm

I have always been interested in history,the period I know the best is 1919-1945 european history ie first and second world war.

I have come to understand that part of the reason the Holocaust was so awful from a Jewish perspective was that not only were some many people needlessly and cruelly murdered, but as many of their bodies were burned, they would not be able to be resurrected in the world to come.

So I have a question, does this belief stem from something written in the Torah, or is it traditional rabbinic belief? As God knows each hair on our head, every grain of sand on a beach, does he not also know every speck of dust and therefore can raise dust to life, or is there more to it than that?

I have heard that the early Christians believed that two thigh bones and a skull were sufficient for a resurrection, does this believe follow on from Jewish thinking?

The body must be intact.
