Description

The Jewish Cemetary on the Mount of Olives has been active for over 2000 years. The site is desirable for those of Jewish faith as a Bible verse (Zech. 14:4) claims that the resurrection will begin here when the messiah arrives. The Mount of Olives is a mountain ridge in East Jerusalem whose name dates back thousands of years when the site was covered in olive groves.
