Israel: Secular Cemetery Stretches The Rules, Leaving Relatives Distraught


Dalet Amot, a company managing the secular cemetery of the Kiryat Anavim kibbutz near Yerushalayim, informed 50 people whose spouses or parents are buried in the cemetery that they will not be buried next to their loved ones even if they already purchased adjacent plots and offered monetary refunds, Haaretz reported.

This followed a decision of the Israel Land Authority that only kibbutz members may be interred at the site. The authority apparently turned a blind eye when Dalet Amot began selling graves to outsiders in 2010.

Distraught relatives are taking the issue to court.
