Hof Hacarmel Cemetery


This cemetery began operating in 1937 after the burial plots in the old cemetery on Jaffa St. were used up.

Victims murdered at the Oil Refineries when Israel's independence was declared were buried in this cemetery.

There is also a plot in which those who died in the Patria ship are buried.

There is a "Bereaved Parents" plot in this cemetery adjacent to the military cemetery, in which parents of fallen IDF soldiers are buried with approval from the Ministry of Defense.

There are also memorial monuments for communities destroyed in the Holocaust.
