Genealogists have been known to haunt cemeteries. This is because so much information is available on the matzevot (tombstones). Niv Fishbein will talk about the design, Hebrew inscriptions and symbols on the grave markers.


For over 7 years, Niv has managed Fram Monument’s Greater Washington showroom. Niv is an expert in multi-cultural memorials, utilizing many languages and religious traditions to honor your loved ones. Niv was actively involved in our revolutionary online bronze memorial designer and previewer. Niv takes pride in every step of the memorial process from the initial consultation with the family to the proof rendering, fabrication and ultimately the installation at the grave site. Niv views every memorial as if it were for a member of his own family so you know the memorial will be made exactly to the family’s wishes.
