Israel’s only crematorium was supposed to be kept a secret.
That was not the case for long.
It was located In Chibat Tzion, and mysteriously burned to the ground at the end of August – after ZAKA publicized its location in a Charedi newspaper. Just three weeks ago, the crematorium vowed to reopen, and its location would remain secret – as we reported HERE on YW.
Not for long.
Yeshivaworld has learned that ZAKA has once again located the location of the new “Aley Shalechet” crematorium – and is reported to be in Eretz Yisroel’s Sharon region (Moshav Choglah, near Chadera). ZAKA Chairman Yehuda Meshi Zahav stated that ZAKA will continue on its campaign to chase them out of the country. He added that the Arab citizens of Israel have joined this campaign as well.
Nine months ago, Meshi Zahav filed a complaint with Israel Police claiming that they carried out activities that are in violation of Israeli law and operated without a necessary permit from the Health Ministry.
It is interesting to note that upon hearing that the crematorium would reopen three weeks ago, Meshi Zahav had stated that he hoped the new crematorium would “fulfill its purpose, and burn down…….like the previous one.”
Time will tell its fate…..
