Burial Societies in Israel

This page contains a list, in English, of burial societies in Israel, based on the Hevra Kadisha and the non-Orthodox alternative list in Hebrew maintained by the government Ministry of Religious Services. Other societies that are not on those lists have also been added.

When looking to find the burial location of a relative who was buried in Israel, finding the burial society that buried them is usually the best way to find the grave. Burial societies sometime manage whole cemeteries, but in many cases only manage sections of cemeteries (so a single cemetery might have many burial societies managing different sections). Some cemeteries in Israel have records of burials, but in general these records are held by the burial societies.

This list is sortable. You can sort by any column by just clicking on the name of the column at the top. Click once and it sorts in Ascending order (i.e. from A to Z), click a second time and it will sort it in Descending order (i.e. from Z to A).

You can also search through the table by entering a search term in the search box on the top right of the table. For example, if you enter ‘Jerusalem’ in the search box, it will only show rows of the table that match the word ‘Jerusalem’.

Below the table you will also find additional notes about burial societies and how to use this information to further your genealogy research. [Jump to the notes]

Much gratitude to Shalom Bronstein for translating this list from Hebrew to English.

Some notes on how to use this list:

1) Burial Societies generally were set up by specific communities, many of which were immigrant groups who buried the members of their original community from elsewhere who moved to Israel. Figuring out which society potentially was responsible for burying your relative will save you a lot of time doing research. For example, some societies only buried Ashkenazi Jews, while others only buried Sephardi Jews. Some societies were specific to a particular town or region, and many were country-specific.

2) Most societies are not very high-tech, and will actually be looking up your requests in paper books. Keep that in mind when speaking to the people who are helping you.

3) Many times when calling societies in this list, the person answering the phone will not speak English or anything other than Hebrew. It is highly recommended you have someone who speaks Hebrew make the call for you if you do not speak Hebrew.

4) You should try to collect as much information about the person you are calling about before you call. Sometimes the hevra kadisha (burial society) will want the name of the father of the deceased, as that will help them confirm they have the correct grave.

5) Where is says DN and a name in the address field, DN stands for Doar Na, which is a mobile post office. In remote areas they use mobile post offices and if you’re sending mail, that’s where it goes.

6) Keep in mind this is a list of burial societies, not a list of cemeteries. There are cemeteries that exist in Israel that are not on this list.

7) It is certainly possible that information in this list is out of date, or otherwise has mistakes. If you find a mistake, or know of other burial societies that are not on this list, please contact us.

8) Lastly, it is important to keep in mind that the great majority of these burial societies are active organizations that deal primarily with burying the dead. They usually will help you track down the information you need, but their primary goal is to help families bury their deceased family members, and if they don’t have time to help you right away, they may have other things they need to do first. Always be respectful of the people you are speaking with, and recognize that looking up gravestone information is not their primary purpose.
