Being Buried Within the City of Jerusalem

undefined

Rabbi Yoel Lieberman

Av 17, 5779
Question
If a Jew is buried within the city of Jerusalem, what direction should they face?
Answer
ב"ה Shalom Within the city of Jerusalem, a person is buried with the feet towards Har Habayit= the Temple mount. (See גשר החיים חלק א, פרק ט"ו, עמ' קלח) May it be Hashem's will to answer happier questions in the future. All the best
