Аврукин против Хевра Кадиша


Просьба о разрешении на подачу представительского иска против похоронного общества "Хевра Кадиша" города Петах Тиквы и её руководства, была подана в ноябре 2016 года, от имени родственников ныне усопших граждан, выходцев из бывшего Советского Союза, и похороненных на кладбищах "Сгула" и "Яркон" в Петах Тикве.

В  заявлении утверждается, что более десяти лет, в Петах-Тикве похоронное общество "Хевра Кадиша" дискриминирует евреев, выходцев из бывшего Советского Союза, производя их захоронения  отдельно от остальных умерших. В ряде случаев также были замечены ограждения между местами захоронения выходцев из бывшего Советского Союза и остальными участками кладбища. Родственники захороненных на отдельных участках требуют немедленного прекращения политики сегрегации во всем, что касается русскоязычных евреев в Израиле, немедленной ликвидации всяческих ограждений и заборов между могилами их родственников и другими участками на кладбище, а также компенсации для них и членов их семей.
