Jewish Tombs on the Mount of Olives

The most important Jewish cemetery can be found on the Mount of Olives, on the opposite side of the Temple Mount. It is a holy place for all Jews, Muslims and Christians. It is believed that God will begin to redeem the souls of the dead at this place first. For Jews and Muslims, the Messiah will first arrive on the Mount. For Christians, the Mount is holy due to biblical events that took place on its slope.
