Plots in Har Hazeisim
For 3000 years, Jews of every stripe and from every sector have vied to be buried in the various sections of the cemetery on Har Hazeitim (Mount of Olives). Jews living in Golus requested burial on Har Hazeitim so as to be among the first to rise from the dead when the Moshiach comes (based on an ancient tradition). Down through the ages, many notable Jewish figures have been buried on Har Hazeitim, including the prophets Haggai, Zechariah and Malachi, along with many prominent rabbis and sages.
Dovid has been working the the field of Jewish Burial Plots for the past 24 years. He served as director of the largest Jewish cemetery in Johannesburg, South Africa, Westpark Cemetery for 8 years.
