Israel: Tel Aviv cemeteries English website

The Greater Tel Aviv Chevra Kadisha's website now has English- and Russian-language versions.

Chevra Kadisha is the Hebrew name for the organization that handles Jewish burials in Jewish cemeteries. There are several cemeteries under the control of the Greater Tel Aviv group.

There is much information on the site's English version, including laws and customs of Jewish mourning, prayers said at home and at the cemetery (Ashkenazi, Sephardi and Yemenite versions), as well as basic information about each area cemetery, its history and maps.

I tried to find, in English, various Talalay/Talalai/Talali relatives whom I know are buried in the Tel Aviv area cemeteries, but the English search engine could not locate those individuals.

Maybe Steve Morse needs to help them out in this department?
