In Israel, the Gentiles tourniquet

June 10 2005

Israeli businessman Alon Nativ, who owns a funeral home, "Aley shalehet" ("Autumn Leaves") has received official permission to open a private crematorium. According to him, it cost a lot of effort because of the current in Judaism, the ban on non-traditional forms of burial of the dead.

In an interview with BBC Nativ said his cremation business is very promising. In a small country with high population density becomes less and less space for disposal, to order a "place in the land" near their homes in advance, the Israelis have to pay more and more, in this sense, the cremation for many becomes an optimal solution.

He added that "Aley shalehet" today is of great interest. The main customers of the entrepreneur, he predicted, will be immigrants from the former Soviet Union, many of which are orthodox Jewish notions of the Jews can not be considered. The first corpse was cremated 66-year-old immigrant from Latvia, a non-Jew.
