A neglected cemetery


Where a cemetery is being debased by the local population, and there is no means of guarding the cemetery, the bodies buried there should be exhumed and moved to a safe location.

The bodies may not be buried in a mixture in a mass grave; each body must have its own space, with some earth dividing it from the next body.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Yoreh Deah 1:246)

Have a good day,
