Jerusalem (JTA) — An Or-
r thodox-secular
standoff over

ancient Jewish graves found
at a road-building site in
northern Jerusalem has
j worsened after the city's
I chief rabbi issued a halachic
ruling forbidding the graves
to be moved.
I ° The decision by Rabbi Yit-
• zhak Kolitz to _move the road
rather than the 2,000-
r year-old graves disap-
L pointed people on both
'=sides of the controversy
who were hoping the rabbi
Would provide an accept-
, able solution sanctioned
by religious law.
Partly because of bad
weather, authorities have
halted road- building at the
site where a projected inter-
-change is intended to relieve
„ major traffic bottlenecks at
the northern entrance to the
city.
In the wake of Rabbi
Kolitz's ruling, a deputy
mayor of Jerusalem, Oman
Yekutieli of the secularist
Meretz bloc has called for
resumption of work on the
road without delay.
Behind him, government
1
archaeologists voiced their
own determination to carry
( out a legally mandated res-
t, cue dig of the Second Temple
__-period burial caves.
A spokesman for the Israel
? Antiquities Authority
( pointed to a statutory re-
quirement that sites
, threatened with ruin by
modern development be ex-
I amined by archaeologists.
It was in just such a
r' routine dig that burial caves
) were unearthed last month
along the route of an inter-
, change designed to spare
r commuters from Neveh
Ya'acov and Pisgat Ze'ev
"one-hour traffic holdups in
the morning.
Riots in the Chasidic
neighborhood of Mea
Shearim prompted a deci-
(' sion to rebury the ancient
bones at Har Hamenuhot
'cemetery in Jerusalem
together with the 16 stone
caskets in which they were
found.
Rabbi Kolitz is now pro-
posing that authorities solve
the traffic problem by
C - A3eeding up work up on a
planned overpass nearby.
But he said the road could
not be built where planned,
as this would entail moving
the graves.
"These dear Jews lived to
',,see our Holy Temple," he
wrote. "Why should we
disturb their eternal
repose?"
