An Eternal Remembrance in the Holy Land of Israel

The RCA has cemetery plots for sale in its own section of the beautiful Eretz HaChaim Cemetery in Beit Shemesh, Israel.  Photos of the RCA sections are here.  For further information, including costs, registration and other arrangements, please email Dov Levine.



Since the days of our forefathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, our People have longed for the opportunity to find their final resting place in the Holy Land of Israel. Eretz HaChaim, with the most beautifully landscaped and carefully maintained memorial grounds in Israel, specializes in assisting Jews from the Diaspora to fulfill that dream and acquire a final resting place in the Land of our Fathers.  

Located just 20 minutes from the center of Jerusalem, Eretz HaChaim’s tranquility and unmatched services give peace of mind to the bereaved, and the picturesque setting, landscaping and meticulous maintenance of the grounds has made Eretz HaChaim a final resting place of choice for thousands of Jews from around the world.

Plots at Eretz HaChaim cost far less than plots on Har HaMenuchot, and the cemetery is very convenient for visitors from abroad with its location just 20 minutes from the airport off the Jerusalem highway. And the facilities are designed to support mourners in their time of need. The casket and accompanying family members are met at the airport. Mourners often use the family room at the modern, fully furnished and air-conditioned chapel to sit shiva before returning to the airport. The memorial grounds are fully electrified to enable funerals after dark, which are very common in the winter months with flights arriving in the late afternoon. There is a full-time office at the cemetery with support staff.

Cohanim are also given special consideration. The landscaping has allowed for wide paths and easy access for them to approach plots of family members, something that is not possible in most cemeteries in Israel. Eretz HaChaim has an additional advantage of being the only cemetery in Israel that can arrange plot reservations for families, communities and organizations.

For decades, the RCA has offered chaverim, their families and congregants the opportunity to purchase plots in the RCA section at Eretz HaChaim. Hundreds have seen the benefit of preparing their final resting place among their colleagues and other choshuve rabbonim. Many balebatim, too, seek to be buried near their beloved rabbi and other well-known and respected leaders.

All this and more make the RCA section at Eretz HaChaim the right choice when considering burial in Israel. Call 212-807-9000 Ext. 2 or e-mail dlevine@rabbis.org today for more information.
