Yes, matzeivos are created from extremely durable stone. However, the Israeli sun, sand, and weather can cause it to lose its original color and result in the letters fading away. Also, in some cemeteries like Har Hazeisim, vandals break and ruin the stones with paint, requiring cleaning and restoration. In addition, kevarim can become overgrown with weeds and grass and also need regular cleaning from dirt and soot. Scheduling regular maintenance and cleaning means that the kever will always be in a dignified condition, befitting of your parent’s memory.

We will “take you there”- by visiting the kever and taking pictures of the site so that you can see if the stones, letters or site need cleaning or repair and decide which services to order.

We’ll send follow-up pictures after the services are performed so that you can see the pristine condition of the kever for yourself.

Absolutely! We can also arrange for a minyan to daven at the kever on her wedding day.

Of course, but many Americans find it hard to communicate with Israeli companies, with language barriers, cultural differences, and time zone complications. In addition, B’tzror Hachaim is very focused on keeping you updated as to service status and kever condition, placing high priority on communications.

Don’t worry! Our connections will help us pinpoint the exact location of the kever.

Yes, we’ll visit the site to determine if the stone can be repaired or needs to be replaced.

That’s okay, there are a lot of choices and it can be overwhelming. Just reach out via phone (718) 500-3080 or email and we will explain all your options.

Yes we do. We’ll gather information from you about the meis and help create the perfect composition to inscribe and honor their memory.

B’tzror Hachaim handles everything. While there may be one organization that arranges minyanim, and another that repairs the stone and a third that can help with purchasing and inscription, no other organization performs all of the services that we do. We save you time, money, and energy by handling everything you need and keeping you connected with your loved one in the simplest, easiest and most caring manner.
