The World Zionist Organization and KKL-JNF hold a cornerstone-laying ceremony for a new entrance gate to the Mount Herzl cemetery in Jerusalem.

The new gate is being designed by the Herzlberg team of architects, led by architect Daniel Strasburger.

Once the renovations are complete, the new entrance complex will showcase a “floating roof” both inside and outside the complex providing shade to visitors, lined by perforated triangles “creating a disassembled and abstract geometry of the Star of David.”

The existing gate was constructed in 1955 by architect Joseph Clervin.
