Burial Societies in the Mount of Olives Cemetery

The Mount of Olives cemetery, though usualy treated as a single cemetery, is actually comprised of several adjacent cemeteries, each one owned and run by a distinct Chevra Kadisha (burial society). The operation of all the Chevrot Kadisha is overseen by Moetzet Batei HaAlmin HaYehudim B’Yerushalyim (Council of Jewish Cemeteries in Jerusalem) and the Ministry of Religious Services.

In many cases, the burial society may have information beyond that available in the Information Center. The Chevra Kadisha is also the correct venue for any queries of logistical nature, such as burial plot purchases, maintenance, funeral arrangements, etc.
