Jerusalem funeral begins of Yehoshua Englander, 9, and his brother Moshe, 14

The Jerusalem funeral begins of Moshe Englander, 14, and Yehoshua Englander, 9, one of two pairs of brothers killed in the crush at Meron, according to Hebrew-language media.

The boys were identified at the Abu Kabir forensic center by their father.

Channel 12 reports that as the start of Shabbat nears — ending the period of time burials are permitted — it becomes a “race against time” to complete funerals.

“Mourners stream in and out of the funeral hall, one group after another as they race to complete the burials,” the correspondent says.
