You can walk to the Herzl Cemetary after your visit to Yad Vashem. It is a very short distance. You can also drive.

This is a great place to see Israel's leaders buried here including Yitzhad Rabin, Golda Meir and others. You will also see the soldiers who are buried here and finally you will visit Herzl's grave which is the centerpiece of the cemetary.

If you have an interest in Israeli history, the cemetery is an absolute must. Located near Yad Vashem & easily accessed by the Jerusalem tram. It's free & gorgeous.Not only contains Herzl's grave but also the graves of many of Israel's famous leaders. Check out the Herzl Centre at the entrance, you need to book the tour, but again it is a must & one of the best tours I have ever been on. Very moving

This is the final resting place of Theodor Hertzel, who founded the modern Zionism.
It is also the site of Israel's national cemetery, where many heads of state are buried.
The most emotional places on the mountain are the grave of Yitchak Rabin, the slain Israeli prime minister and the wall in memory of all the Israelis who perished due to terror attacks by the Palestinians.

Thanks to the recommendation received from the office of myjerusalemapartments

The experience of attending the Israeli Independence Day ceremony at Mount Herzl is totally different to that of other nations.

While the sacrifices of the Country are explicitly dealt with on the previous day, Memorial Day the Independence Day ceremony was more about recognising achievement by people from various walks of life and backgrounds.

Also very emotional. This is the area where all levels of society - military, political, unknown. A review of how the country grew.
