Due to the lack of burial plots in Jerusalem, the Hevra Kadisha has begun burying deceased Jews in multi-story structures. While the Sephardic Hevra Kadisha still has individual burial plots, Ashkenazi Jews are buried in multi-story structures and in double plots, while Sephardic ones are buried underground.
