I would definitely recommend this on your trip to Israel. It is a place like no other with the way they are able to bring beauty into a such a sad place.

The amazing people in this cemetery makes it a fascinating walk. You experience the political history of Israel just walking through. The respect for the dead and for the sacrifice they made is evident.
