I am very interested in visiting the IDF section of Mt. Herzl. Are there signs and maps available in English. I would like to visit the grave sites of Yitzak Rabin, Golda Meir and Yonatan Netanyahu. Can you tell the approximate walking distance from Mt Herzl. . Also, can you give me the approximate walking distance from the IDF cemetery to the Yad Vashem Memorial. Thank You Sincerely, Mark Provenzano
