Historic Jewish Cemetery in Massachusetts Vandalized
Dust to Ashes - Cremation among Jews has become so popular that funeral homes now offer “Jewish-style” cremations — a rabbi for the memorial service, a decorative urn with a Magen David
Why Does Jewish Law Forbid Cremation?
I found a site which offers cremation and under a tab about myth versus reality read following.
Judaism does not allow the burning of human bodies - Wrong. When we turned to one of the Rabbis on this subject, we received a definite answer that not only does cremation not oppose Judaism, but this was even the custom during the period of the kings.
The site posts three pesukim to justify their contention and one is in Shmuel 31:12.
"All the valiant men arose, and went all night, and took the body of Saul and the bodies of his sons from the wall of Bet- Shan, and they came to Yavesh, and burned them there."
Of course, the site doesn't include the next verse "And they took their bones and buried them under the tree in Jabesh, and they fasted seven days" nor was an aternative explanation of what actually happened at the burning provided. Look at footnote 9 at the end of an article over here.

New York Times Trend Story Touts ‘Jewish Parents’ Avoiding Circumcision
This past week I wrote about a poignant letter penned by one of the victims of the Halamish attack. The New York Times didn't publish her letter, to the best of my knowledge, but, rather printed the killer's message on his Facebook page.
The JPost included in an article that the killer wrote,
"You, sons of monkeys and pigs, if you do not open the gates of al-Aksa, I am sure that men will follow me and will hit you with an iron fist, I am warning you.”
No doubt due to space constraints, the New York Times didn't publish those words but instead wrote that he "signed off with emojis including hearts'."
And yet the paper has all the space in the world to write about how a baby whose mother is not Jewish is not receiving a circumcision.
