    Jewish green cemetery in Marin expands

    Gan Yarok cemetery in Mill Valley - billed as the nation's first green Jewish cemetery when it opened in 2010 - is now even greener, having increased in size after a multi-denominational consecration ceremony on Aug. 9. The new section opened under the religious guidance of rabbis from three different denominations: Stuart Kelman, founding rabbi of Congregation Netivot Shalom in Berkeley; Gershon Albert of Beth Jacob Congregation in Oakland; and David Cooper, rabbi emeritus of Kehilla Community Synagogue in Piedmont. Gan Yarok uses no concrete liners or embalming fluid, and bodies are buried in plain wooden boxes, wicker baskets or biodegradable shrouds, allowing decomposition and a return to nature.
