A gift unwanted; Now with meaning

My husband & I were given plots by his mother. At a cemetery where his family is buried. We rarely visit his, but go where my family is buried. I didn't appreciate the gesture or the meaning. I went on a JWRP trip. Many things go through my mind on such a special trip. You see, a very famous Rebbi is buried adjacent to my gifted plot. There is always someone praying near by. When we do go to visit his family's area, we are usually joined by those praying for the Rebbi to help us say the prayers. It has taken on a whole new level of meaning for me. One that I now appreciate.

information regarding buying plots in Israel

We are interested in buying plots in Israel but have been told that both Har Hamenuchot and Mount of Olives are sold out.
All our family members in Israel live in or near Jerusalem.
Could you suggest whom to call for information?
Thank you so much

Burial in Israel

My dream has always been to live in Israel. Life didn't work out that way but I do have two sons and grandchildren who live there. A few years back my husband and I bought burial plots in a cemetery in Bet Shemesh. The name of the cemetery is Eretz Hachaim. I'm a Chicagoan and there a many Chicagoans and, unfortunately, friends who are buried there. I remember that we had trouble finding out about this place so I have the following information for you. The address is POBox 41136, Jerusalem, Israel and the phone is 2991146. If you should need it, the fax is 29997527. There might be a website but I'm not sure. Hope this is helpful and you shouldn't need it for many, many years.

Burial in Israel

Thank you so much for passing on the information.
I heard that buying burial plots in advance is a segula for long life.
All the best
