A section of 25 burial plots has been reserved in the Eretz Hachaim Cemetery in Beit Shemesh, Israel for the Great Neck Synagogue and are being sold directly. The cemetery is located 20 minutes from Ben Gurion Airport off Highway 1 which runs between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.
As you know, it is a great privilege to be buried in the Holy Land of Israel. Eretz Hachaim is a privately owned and operated cemetery in the Jerusalem Hills. 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. In addition, a special section for Cohanim will be provided.
The current price for each plot is $ 6,500.00. There is an additional fee of $1,850 for the Chevra Kadisha in Israel which includes transportation from Ben Gurion Airport to the cemetery, Shmira, use of the chapel and an area to sit Shiva should one be flying back to America the same day. If someone passes away while in Israel, this fee also includes moving the body from any location and Tahara. If paid at the time the burial plot is purchased, that price is guaranteed not to rise, even if the fee increases in the future.
