2. Also, I have been told that, where a husband and wife are buried, side
by side, the wife must not have a Male (stranger)on her other side. Is
this so?

Our local cemetery (Gush Etzion) does this, but it is not halacha. It is also very
problematic logistically.

I would like to thank the four individuals who took the time to offer me
advice on my questions concerning interment on Jewish Cemeteries. I
conclude that there is no Jewish law regarding where the first burial is
located in a new row and the individual Society or Cemetery owner decides
this (n'est-ce pas???)

1. According to the established Rules of Halacha, where is the first grave

site located, when a new Row in a Cemetery is started, front, middle or
back, or ?

2. Also, I have been told that, where a husband and wife are buried, side
by side, the wife must not have a Male (stranger)on her other side. Is
this so?

Advanced thanks and appreciation for any response,

Stan Cohen

Since your name is Cohen may we assume that you are a kohen? If so, in most
Jewish cemeteries in Israel kohanim are buried near a path where their male
relatives, also kohanim, may pass by, since kohanim are not allowed to walk
in cemeteries proper. My son is a kohen and his father was buried two weeks
ago at the very edge of a section in the cemetery overlooking a path where
he can come to pray.
Sincerely.
