ISRAEL - THE JEWISH COMMUNITY

http://www.kosherdelight.com/Israel.htm [August 2003]

A memorial site for the Israeli soldiers fallen in the wars of Israel with their names, pictures and life stories was established by the Ministry of Defense (in Hebrew). Indices for military cemeteries are not generally included in civilian Chevra Kadish information. The army has a Hebrew web site with all names, including burial info.

To view a Directory of Chevra Kadisha see JewishGen Infofiles

Israel Jewish funeral and burial arrangements traditionally are seen as a community responsibility, with each community having its own Chevra Kadisha (Holy Brotherhood) responsible for all aspects of the preparation for burial and the burial itself. Chevra Kadisha Membership is a great honor. (By Gideon Carmi, Kibbutz Machanaim) Some of following data originally derived is from a translation of the Ministry of Religions booklet, dated spring 1997. Very small cemeteries such as those on kibbutzim are not included. Several members of the BeerSheva Genealogy Society assisted Israel Pickholtz This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Phone numbers are given assuming a call from Israel. If you call from outside Israel, precede the number with 972 (Israel country code) and remove the leading zero. For example: calling Afula from Israel: 06-649-2679 from overseas: 972-6-649-2679. Numbers starting with 050, 051, 052, 053 are cellular phones. Last Updated on Monday, 12 January 2009 15:11

Note:
The list below contains the GPS of some Jewish cemeteries in Israel.
To find the location of a cemetery with GoogleEarth, enter
The number from "North" column, +N, then the number from the East"
column +E in the search field.  Example, to find Nesher, enter:
32.765N 35.030E   Don't forget to press "search".

This file contains notes about cemeteries in a few of the larger cities.

All cemetery web searches are in Hebrew.

If the death was before 1990, many records may be only hand written
and information other than name, father's name, date of
death and ID number may be the only information listed
with the location of the grave.

Haifa:      I am not clear if Kfar Samir and Neveh Yehoshua are two
cemeteries in the same collection of cemeteries or two
names for the two cemeteries. The collection includes
Jewish Military, Catholic, Greek Orthodox, Angelica,
Muslim, Commonwealth and other cemeteries.

Haifa has a web site for searching locations of Jewish graves:
http://kadisha.net

Tel Aviv:   Tel Aviv Burial Society manages 6 cemeteries.
-Jaffa Jewish in Jaffa (Open twice weekly and by request)
-Trumpuldor in Tel Aviv
-Nachalat Yistzhak in Tel Aviv/Givataaim
-Kiryat Shaul in Tel Aviv
-Holon (South) in Bat Yam (entrance from Bat Yam and Rishon LeZion)
-Yarkon in Petach Tikvah
The web site for Tel Aviv is http://www.kadisha.biz

Petach Tikva's cemetery is called Squla. There is a computer kiosk at the
entrance for locating graves.
The web site for Squla is: http://www.squla.org
Squla contains a section that is managed by a Beni Brak
Society.

Netanya:    There is a computer kiosk at the entrance.

Beni Brak:  2 or 3 cemeteries are located next to each other.
Beni Brak has at least 4 Burial Societies.

Jerusalem:  Har Hamenuchot is the same as Givat Shaul.
There are at least 3 cemeteries located here with
no division between the sections and the sections are
not continuous. There is a map of part of Jerusalem Community
Cemetery after the main parking area, enter to the left and
the map is on the right.

At this time there are at least 12 Burial Societies in Jerusalem.
If you arrive between 9:00 and 13:00, you can usually
call and get directions to the section you seek. Be sure to
call the correct Society.

Kfar Saba:  There is a little known cemetery back to back with the military
cemetery. Tel Avivians that were expelled from Tel Aviv
during WWI (and died) are buried here.

Military:   IDF web site is:  http://www.izkor.gov.il
Many military graves are located in non military cemeteries.
Some in a special section, but graves can be found any place
in most cemeteries.

Commonwealth:  The web site is: http://www.cwgc.org.
I included this site as there are a few Jewish graves,
and Commonwealth graves in Jewish cemeteries.


The Israel Genealogy Research Association's web site is:
http://genealogy.org.il  This site has a large English
section.  At this time it includes a list of Burial Societies
and etiquette hints.

All sites shown are public.
All cemetery global positions(GPS) are from Waze.co.il, b144.co.il and GoogleEarth.
The cemetery names are according to Waze, unless the name is unclear, or not shown in
Waze, then the name is from b144.
