Jewish tomb raider causes anger and sorrow

  • Letter3
The article “Tomb raider caught out in Cape cemetery” in the 26 July edition of the SA Jewish Report elicited emotions of sorrow and anger that a fellow Jewish stonemason could vandalise and desecrate graves for his personal financial gain.

A cemetery is a holy place. As a cantor and stonemason, I have the honour and privilege of manufacturing tombstones in respect of the deceased who have passed on to the next world.

First and foremost, I consider it a great mitzvah (good deed) to carry out this special holy work. I have been informed by families, for whom I have made tombstones over the past decade, that the matzevah (tombstone) gives them much comfort and peace when they visit their relatives at our Jewish cemeteries in Cape Town.

I trust that this will never ever happen in the future, and that our loved ones may rest b’shalom in peace.
