Any help/advice will be greatly appreciated. "

My son Aharon Epstein mans the information booth on the Mount of Olives; helps to maintain the database; and also helps people locate graves. Write to Har-hazetim@... or call 972-2-627-5050 Sun-Thurs 09:00-17:00 (Israel time).

There is also a website:  but my son cautions that it only works with Chrome and that people should cancel the auto-translate (sorry, it's a work in progress).

Several articles have been written about my son and the work the City of David is doing at the Mount of Olives. They are really doing amazing work helping people locate family members and in adding graves to the database.
