Help Save a Jew from Cremation

A recently departed Jew from Chicago is scheduled to be cremated due to a lack of funds for a proper burial. Help a shliach bring her to a Jewish burial.

Message from Rabbi Levi Notik, Director of FREE in Chicago:

Rabbi, can u please come say a prayer at the cremation? 

That’s how the phone call began. 

I immediately davened that they don’t cremate him, and began explaining that according to Halacha he should have a proper burial and not be cremated.

It’s cheaper to cremate, we can’t afford a burial, they argued.

Please, I pressed, I’ll try to raise the necessary funds, please hold off on the cremation.

Can you help give this person Kevuras Yisroel? It’s real Chesed Shel Emes.
