      Minister Calls to Bury ‘Bodies Exhibit’ Bodies

      Deputy Health Minister Yakov Litzman has sent a letter to Attorney General Yehudah Weinstein calling to shut down the “Bodies” exhibit in Tel Aviv and bury the bodies on display. Litzman cited Israeli law regarding the prompt burial of human remains.

      The exhibit uses human remains to show the inner workings of the human body. It has been challenged as unethical by many, including rabbinic leaders, who reportedly contacted Litzman to voice their concerns.
