Man’s exit from the world is a secret, just like his coming into it.
The secret is one of God’s graces upon us
Not to tell us the actual reality of life in the world to come
From which we hail, and to which we shall return.
Every generation, God grants wise students the knowledge of the secrets needed to us, which they then pass on (to us) based on our ability to understand and learn from them. They are the ones who have determined all the laws and rituals regarding the process of the soul’s exit from the body, the purification, burial, Shiv’ah, and year.
Since Israel’s establishment, no discussion has taken place regarding the burial process and the cemeteries, but rather a continuation of the diasporic natural internment was practiced.
The transition to use of wall vaults was mainly initiated by business professionals, because of territory issues and cost.
With this website we would like to convince the people of Israel that we should return to the form
Of burial that was common until Israel’s exile-
Family burial chambers, in which the purification and shrouding of the deceased, as well as the eulogies, are done as accustomed today. After that, the deceased is moved into the
family burial chamber by two bed bearers and placed in it.
After a year, the remains are collected and placed in a chest
And are laid with the rest of the family, until the resurrection of the dead.
The practical and spiritual advantages of burial in in family chambers
Which include cutting down on space and costs far outweigh the burial methods practiced today.
