In a highly unusual ruling, one of Israel’s chief rabbis has allowed a Palestinian Arab man to be buried in a special plot, reserved for those without religious faith, in the Jewish Har HaMenuchot cemetery in Jerusalem.

At issue is the decision of Aryeh Stern, the Ashkenazi chief rabbi of Israel, to...
