      Jewish Woman Saved From Muslim Burial

      A Jewish woman who passed away Tuesday morning was nearly buried in a Muslim cemetery. The burial was prevented by the actions of ZAKA ("Disaster Victim Identification"), a group ensuring proper burial for victims according to Jewish law.

      The woman had been in a relationship with an Arab man, and over the years they had a daughter. The girl is currently at the dormitory of Yad L'achim, an anti-missionary organization that has saved captive Jewish women on numerous occasions.
