How Jewish Is Your Cemetery?

I’m trying to make sense of a strange legal battle — one getting more mainstream media attention than Jewish media attention — concerning a Jewish cemetery in Colchester, Conn.

At Ahavath Achim, a Jewish board member (ironically named Maria) is suing to have the body of Juliet Steer, a black Christian woman exhumed, because Steer is not Jewish and has no ties to any Jews buried there.
