"On Mount Herzl, With the Keepers of the Graves"

Toolkit Resource

This article, written by Mitch Ginsberg and published in The Times of Israel on May 5th 2014, provides "a look at how the national military cemetery was founded, how it has changed, and how its staff strives daily to ease the unending pain of the bereaved." Ginsberg offers insight into some of the people we are not likely to think about when visiting Har Herzl, including the landscape architects and gardeners, whose special attention to the layout and aesthetics of the national cemetery is worth considering.
