Israel’s undertakers announced a nationwide strike. Local religious councils, which administer religious services, are to halt all burials as of Thursday to protest widespread non-payment of salaries. The strike, announced Wednesday, will not affect Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and Haifa, where funeral services are provided by private chevra kadisha groups.
