Boston funeral home drops Orthodox burial society

«After Brezniak-Rodman announced that it would provide space for the new group, which has more than 100 volunteers, Rabbi Naftali Horowitz, who is known as the Bostoner Rebbe, sent a letter stating that the Chevra Kadisha of Greater Boston would continue operating there only "if we are the only one using the facilities." Allowing a nondenominational group to use the funeral home's facilities would "add great confusion regarding the standards which will be administered," the letter said.

Last week, Brezniak-Rodman confirmed that the Chevra Kadisha of Greater Boston had stopped working with the funeral home.»

Oh. When I saw the headlines I thought it would be because the chevra kadisha was demanding separate entraces for men and women and a mechitza in the main hallway.
