A minimum six week period will be required to arrange for the selection, ordering, engraving, and delivery of a monument and/or footstone. Once the monument is ordered, the monument maker will coordinate with Yosi Even-Hen, Ritual Director, for verification of the Hebrew text, as well as with the cemetery office to schedule the placement of the monument foundation and the installation.
