Q: Why can't someone just be buried in
the ground without a casket, as is the custom
in Israel?


Almost two centuries ago, plagues
caused massive fatalities. These resulted in
the creation of municipal cemeteries instead
of burials on family-owned land. A "suitable"
container was required, so workers would not
haVe to touch a person who died inexplicably.
This was the beginning of the casket business
as we know it today. Cemeteries still require
that "suitable" container.
