Chief Rabbinate Approves Forensic Sample Burial

Dubbed the ‘Rest in Peace’ Project, the Chief Rabbinate prepares to bury thousands of containers retrieved from the National Institute for Forensic Medicine holding tissue samples kept in storage for decades. The samples will either be interred in a special mass grave, otherwise actual existing graves will be opened to admit the fragments.
