Rachelís Tomb
For over three thousand years, Rachelís Tomb has been the continuous focus of Jewish prayers. The Biblical Matriarch, Rachel, wife of Jacob and mother to Joseph and Benjamin, died in childbirth and was buried by Jacob near Bethlehem, on the road to Efrat. Over the centuries, her tomb has been depicted in Haggadahs, prayer books and travel accounts world over. Her presence has been deeply felt by all who come to visit her burial site. Perhaps, that is because according to tradition, Rachelís soul continues to weep at her childrenís pain and rejoice at their happiness. Come, take a short trip with us to Bethlehem - Mother Rachel is waiting for you!
