Jewish Cemeteries: How does the halakhah apply today?

Yom Iyun JC & Burial NJAlthough the sunlight outside was enticing, about forty congregants turned out for our Yom Iyun on Jewish Cemeteries and Burial of Non-Jews. Rabbi Harry presented the relevant halakhah using an historical approach. Those present listened attentively and responded with thoughtful questions and comments.

The Rabbi said that he would issue a formal response to this question by January 2018 when there would be a congregational meeting to consider the matter. Those present understood that any decision to change the current burial rules would require various policy/by-law decisions by the congregation.
