Remembrance and Halacha: How to commemorate while respecting Jewish law?

The meeting will focus on the relationship between commemoration and the establishment of memorials and the regulations contained in Jewish law. Knowledge of the guidelines arising from Jewish religious regulations for burial sites is necessary to pay respect to the deceased, but at the same time is not yet sufficiently well known. Is it permitted to erect a fallen headstone, pull up weeds in the cemetery or move human remains? What are the differences between war graves and traditional graves? How do you mark gravesites? Aleksander Schwarz will answer these and other questions from participants.
