Directions to Kever: The Beth Olam Cemetery in Cypress Hills is bisected by the border between Brooklyn and Queens. The paths are not well marked and finding the individual monuments can be difficult. Location: Shearith Israel section, to the right of the Chapel Building, at the bottom of the hill along the main path on the left.
