Mt Herzl is comparable to Arlington National Cemetery in the USA. It is filled with the famous and the fallen. Too many brave soldiers are buried along with many of Israel's great leaders and thinkers. It's important and impactful to visit.

This well kept cemetery is the resting place of many soldiers of the Israel Defense Forces, founders of modern political Zionism, and Israeli leaders. It is a testament to the sacrifices made by the young for the continuation of this beacon of hope.

Privilege to visit this national cemetery. The history of the State of Israel and those who have given their lives in her service is on display at this location.
