During an intense preparatory undertaking to enclose and preserve the cemetery in Pinsk/Karlin, Belarus, HFPJC board members received an urgent call about ongoing construction activities within this sacred area. Immediately after Pesach, representatives flew to Belarus to negotiate the immediate halt of the desecrating activities, and were met with understanding and compassion from the locals and authorities. This led to a peaceful resolution, in which the construction plans were altered to keep the cemetery intact.
