Requesting gravestone photos Trumpeldor Cemetery, Tel Aviv-Yafo #israel


Beverley Davis
 

I have location information on two burials from 1903 and 1904 at Trumpeldor Cemetery, Tel Aviv-Yafo for which I would appreciate photos of gravestones. Please reply privately if you are able to help. Thank you.

Dear Beverley,

Photos of graves in Trumpeldor cemetery are already online in several websites. One of them, relatively easy to use, is Gravez. The home page is in English but you have to search for the name in Hebrew: https://gravez.me/

For those interested, the above website also has photos from a number of other cemeteries in Israel. However, probably the largest source of photos of graves in Israel, from the most cemeteries, is billiongraves.com. Once again, to find anything, the search must be done in Hebrew.

All the best,

Miriam is correct.  If you send the names of the people, I am sure one of us could provide you the Hebrew spelling or even look it up for you.

I tried this website, and to my great delight I was able to search in English and found a photo of the gravestone of a relative: Devorah Shervitz.
I also found a search result for her husband Leon Shervitz, but clicking on the link to the photo revealed a gravestone for somone named Yehuda Arieh. 
Could this be the same person? Arieh becomes Leo/Leon?

Well, it looks more as though Leon became Arieh, rather than the other way around, seeing as he was buried in Israel. :) Yes, Leon and Arieh both mean lion. As does Leib in Yiddish. A lion was the symbol of the tribe of Judah (Yehuda in Hebrew) so the names Arieh or Leib and Yehuda are often seen together.
All the best,
