A solution has yet to be found for the problem of the
hundreds of crates of human bones discovered in the basement
of the Jerusalem Hadassah Ein Karem School of Dentistry.
On 8 Tammuz, the Federation for the Prevention of the
Desecration of Graves reported that the cellar still contains
200 crates full of ancient bones yet to be brought to burial.
As a result, kohanim are still forbidden to enter the
Federation heads have issued a heartfelt appeal to anyone
capable of acting on behalf of these meisei mitzvah to
do anything within their means to rectify the situation. "All
of the bones which have been discovered came from
archaeological excavations which took place twenty years ago!
The bones were maintained in a disgraceful manner all those
years, serving as material for various tests by students and
researchers. Now the time has come to bring them to their
eternal rest in an honorable manner so that they may repose
in peace and tranquillity until the coming of the
Moshiach," they noted.
The Federation has also asked that anyone travelling
throughout the country be on the alert at every suspicious
site and report every archaeological excavation taking place
in any location. To report any findings, contact 050- 206035
