ABOUT:

Located a few block off of Elysian Fields, Hebrew rest is home to over 5 blocks of beautiful graves. The site was chosen to its elevated surface relative to the city so that bodies could truly be buried under the ground. This is due to the belief in the Jewish faith that bodies must be fully buried so the souls may properly rest.
