Burial In Israel

Any member of the UNITED HEBREW COMMUNITY OF NEW YORK can choose to purchase graves in Israel. In the past, most have favored cemeteries in the heart of Jerusalem. Our organization will assist with the purchase of graves in Jerusalem from reputable chevros (burial societies) that have historically worked with the Jerusalem City Government. We would help any person, regardless of membership, seeking our advise and counsel to contact any Israeli chevra without any commissions or fees.

It is a goal of the UNITED HEBREW COMMUNITY OF NEW YORK to help our member families guard against unscrupulous shipping agents, salesman, brokers, directors, inflated prices caused by sales commissions, misleading advertisements and questionable claims.
