    the next one with Moshiach!!

    The next sefer will be with Moshiach’s inscription!!
    Not possible for Hakadosh Baruch Hu to hold back any longer!
    After seeing His kinderlach perform yet another beautiful achdus event – He will surely have rachmanos and fulfill His promise.

    Halachic source please

    Beautiful idea and kol hakavod to the organizers.

    But if I could respectfully add, that as a community rabbi, I’ve always understood that its ossur to write a sefer Torah in a beis hakvoros. Obviously someone gave a psak for this, I’m curious to know, for my own learning, why this was allowed?

    Thank You.

    Great great neshoma Mr Farkas

    I am far from a posek but isn’t it possible that this is not actually ON the site but just off on the side of the site? Also since these neshamos are considered kedoshim I suspect their grave-sites fall into a totally different category. I recall when visiting Tzvat – I was shown a site where several failed attempts at building a bridge was abandoned because after the bridge collapsed a few times it was decided that most likely holy people were buried there and the earth simply would not allow a construction over their sites.

    I have a simple question

    Our job is to elevate the land we walk on we live in etc.
    Can someone please explain what does this event add to this hollow ground
    is there a human being living today holy enough to walk there
    yes my heart is warmed by the event pictures etc.
    but please let’s not forget what that place is
    When G-d and the Holy soul’s look down from above I don’t want them to see celebration I want them to see what it really is
    and let moshiach come now

    From the pictures it looks like the ceremony was inside the camp. It is well documented that unfortunately the camp is full of human remains, including the infamous Pool of Ashes, which is not fenced off.

    Bottom line: Kohanim are not allowed to visit the camp according to many poskim.

    I love central synagogue
