The United Synagogue is to spend almost £2 million to ensure that its two main cemeteries maintain operations well into the second half of this century.
But US head of burials Melvyn Hartog is confident that the commitment will not herald an increase in burial fees.
"We run a very tight ship," he told the JC this week. "Nothing is wasted and every penny we spend is accounted for. I believe we will be able to absorb these costs without putting up the fees."
