One of the major Burial societies in Jerusalem, if not the largest is the
society affiliated with this group. The family which runs the society is
called GELBSTEIN and the phone# is: 5384144 ( >from outside of Israel
you add 972-2-)
See http://www.jewishgen.org/Rabbinic/infofiles/glossary.htm. They
corresponded to the Misnagdim in Europe, who were the opponents of the
Chasidim.
