Abstract

ABSTRACT:

The article discusses the unique burial sites constructed during the early years of the State of Israel, for three exemplary Zionist figures—Herzl, Weizmann and Rothschild and probes the dilemmas surrounding their interment away from "ordinary" mortals, and contrary to Jewish custom. The article focuses on the designs of Mount Herzl, the Weizmann Institute and Ramat Hanadiv, (the memorial for Baron Edmond de Rothschild) and the process of change these underwent as the original architectural plans were replaced by a more modest style and scale.
