    Making a trip to israel soon and would like to know the locations and or names of famous kevarim to go to.

    thank you!

    Dave Hirsch

    I was inspired (most) at the following locations:

    Kosel (Western Wall) – Jerusalem

    Kever Rochel – Bethlehem

    Me’orat Hamachpeila – Hebron

    Kever Yosef (Hatzadik) – Nablus (Shechem)

    Rebbi Shimon bar Yochai – Meron

    The following are famous as well:

    Har Hazeisim (Jerusalem) – Zecharya Hanavi, Bartenura, Ohr Hachaim and more

    Tzfas Cemetery (Safed) – Rabbi Pinchas ben Yair, Rabbeinu Bchayei, Arizal, Beis Yosef and more

    Teverya (Tiberias) – Rebbi Meir Baal Haneis

    There are many other places in Teverya (Imaos, Reb Chiya, Talmidei Rav, Cemetery etc.)

    On the road between Tzfas and Miron you can make many stops (Rebbi Yehuda bar Iloi, Krispidoi etc.)

    There are more Kevarim in many small towns in the Galilee.


    The best thing to do is go with a tour. There is no possible way for you to get to ALL the choshuv places safely without getting lost or wasting your time.

    You can look up Artzeinu Tours who is very good.

    Rabbi Simcha Hochbaum at the Hebron Fund gives the best tour of Chevron, Kever Rochel, Maaras Hamachpelah.

    One Israel Fund/Yesha takes you places on one else takes you, but not kevorim.

    Look up Gershon Kaufman who I believe still does Kevorim tours. Ask friends and family. Ask these tour guides if there is a special kever you want to go to, they might be able to hook you up.


    Ask a Bocher that learned in Eretz Yisrael. Odds are he was at any given place you’d be interested in going.


    I will iy”H be in Yerushalayim Jan. 8 – Feb. 7 for my nephew’s wedding. I will be renting a car.
    I am looking to go to Amuka. (I’m an alman/widower, and will also be davening for 2 of my sons [yesoimim.]) Is it safe for me to go alone?
    Same question for the kever of the Ohr Hachaim Hakadosh (HarvHazeisim.)
    Same question with the Kever of The Chovos Halevovos (Tzefas or By kever of Chavakuk?) I am writing a sefer on the Chovos Halevovos, so I certainly would want to daven there.
    Guided tours up north include much more, and I believe it wold be too long a day for me.
