Kivrei Tzadikim in the USA

I received an email from a website dedicated to Kevarim of Rabbonim buried in The United States and Canada. The site is www.kevarim.com. I have been to many of Kivrei Tzadikim in the New York area, but they have more than I ever knew existed. There are kevarim of Chassidishe Rebbes, Litvishe Rosh Yeshivas and many other Rabbonim from various backrounds. This is a summary of what the site is about, taken from their website:

In recent years we have seen an upsurge of interest in visiting kevarim of tzadikim in Eastern Europe and Eretz Yisroel. At any given time of the year, one can find both private and group tours traveling throughout Eastern Europe. Regrettably, most people do not realize that, right here in the United States, one can find the final resting places of many Admorim  and Rabbanim, who lived both before and after the Holocaust and who made major contributions to Yiddishkeit as we know it today.

Scores of books have been published identifying kivrei tzadikim in Eretz Yisrael and Eastern Europe. Yet, to date, there is not one single source identifying kivrei Admorim and Rabbanim in the United States. In addition, to this kivrei tzadikim directory, we have undertaken to compile a listing which will include a short biography, picture, and directions to the tzion of each Rebbe or Rav.

The goal of this project is twofold: to preserve the memory of departed Gedolei Yisrael, and to provide a place to turn to in time of need to those who may not have the opportunity to travel.
