Important Update from the Eternal Israel Staff
We here at Eternal Israel are excited for our launch as the first and only professional organization offering burial services to non-Israeli Christians in the Holy Land of Israel. While we have secured the necessary permits to be able to do this, we are still waiting on final approval from the Israeli government and various Ministries.
In the meantime, we would like to offer an exclusive service that will be continued to be offered after the launch of our organization.
For the first time, Eternal Israel is offering the opportunity to scatter your loved one’s ashes over the Mount of Olives, the very spot where Jesus Christ ascended into Heaven (Acts 1:9-12). While similar services exist for scattering of ashes in the Holy Land, ETERNAL ISRAEL is the only professional organization that offers this on the Mount of Olives, the holiest burial site in the Bible, and one of the most important locations in the life of Christ.
The Eternal Israel Ash Package includes:
- A scattering ceremony of your loved one on the Mount of Olives, where Jesus Christ ascended into Heaven
- A commemorative video, shot by a professional videographer, of the scattering included at no extra cost
- A framed certificate certifying the date and location of the scattering
- All administrative fees, licenses, permits, and all shipping and handling charges as well as flights and import/customs declarations with the Israeli government
We will arrange to ship the ashes to Jerusalem, Israel, and send you an email with detailed instructions on how to prepare the ashes for shipment. We will arrange pickup and shipment of the ashes from your address.
We will notify you when the scattering service will take place and soon thereafter send you an internet link to the memorial video.
Your certificate and DVD with the tribute video will be mailed to you, also free of charge.
While other similar services exist, ours is the only one on the Mount of Olives, and is the most affordable out there. We are offering this package for the price of $699 USD—our scattering services will be open to people from all countries, as will our eventual burial services, of course.
Please contact us today for more information!
Introducing the first and only professional organization of burial services for non-Israeli Christians in Israel
Working with full cooperation of the Israeli government, Eternal Israel instantly guarantees everlasting resting spots on the Mount of Olives, a sacred space from which Jesus Christ ascended into Heaven (Acts 1:9-12). Let your soul spend Eternity in the Kingdom of Heaven, while your body rests on Earth’s holiest of holies. Capitalize on this new and exciting opportunity, and for the first time ever, exercise your God-given right as promised in Scripture.
The Land of Israel has always occupied a special place in the Bible, and has in turn been occupied by the special people of the Bible. The great figures of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joshua, Samson, King David, and others can all be found buried within its borders. The tombs of John the Baptist and the Virgin Mary are similarly found in Israel, as is the vacant tomb of Jesus Christ.
Israel is unlike anywhere else in the world, and its spiritual benefits transcend even death itself. The forefathers knew this; Jacob specifically requested on his deathbed not to be buried in Egypt, but rather to be buried with his ancestors in the Holy Land (Genesis 47:29-30). In fact, Abraham purchased the cave of Machpelah from Ephron the Hittite for the explicit purpose of ensuring a secure burial place in the Land of Israel for his future offspring (Genesis 23).
What is the Mount of Olives?
The Mount of Olives (Hebrew: הַר הַזֵּיתִים, Har HaZeytim), a range of hills adjacent to Jerusalem's Old City, is one of the most significant places in the Bible. Right behind where the Temple of Herod once stood, the Mount has been used as a cemetery for the Jewish people for well over 3,000 years, and holds approximately 150,000 graves. Several major events in the life of Jesus Christ, as told in the Gospels, took place on the Mount of Olives: in the Acts of the Apostles, it is described as the very place from which Christ ascended into heaven (Acts 1:9-12).
The Mount of Olives was the starting point for Christ’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem (Matthew 21, Mark 11, Luke 19, and John 8). Matthew 24–25 mentions how Jesus taught and prophesied to His disciples on the Mount of Olives, including the famous Olivet Discourse (Mark 13, Matthew 24, Luke 21). The Mount of Olives was special to Jesus in life as in death, and He spent every night resting there after long days of teaching (Luke 21:37).
Do I need to be Jewish to be buried in the Land of Israel?
Any citizen of the State of Israel, Jewish or not, has the right to be buried within Israel’s borders. However, historically speaking, only non-Israeli Jews had the right to be flown in specifically for the purpose of burial. For the first time in history, Eternal Israel has secured burial rights for non-Israeli Christians in the Land of Israel.
