'Beth Olam

The expression "Beth Olam" for

to the life after death as the 353-4550
"house of eternity." By using this
expression the individual expresses
his belief in the "immortality of
the soul" when he thinks of the
cemetery. The grave is thus not
the end of man's existence — but
rather a sign that man has found
his place in eternity and now be-
comes immortal. In this same vein
of thought, the cemetery is called
"Beth ha-Hayylm," i.e., the House
of Life, indicating that those who
lie there are not dead but living
in a different sense of the word.
