Those involved in the business of getting New York's Jews to their final resting place have long been aware of problems in smoothly accomplishing their goal. This week, after several years of negotiations, the Jewish Community Relations Council is poised to sign an agreement with a group of New York City-area Jewish cemetery officials that would help alleviate some of these problems. "I think this is a terrific agreement for everybody. It's good for the cemeteries, the community and the public at large," said Gerald Hass, president of the Jewish Cemetery Association.
