A record-breaking crowd spent Shabbos in Hebron this weekend in honor of Parshas Chayei Sarah.
More than 45,000 people from all over Israel and abroad spent Shabbos in the city of the forefathers.
They stayed in private homes, caravans, schools and even tents that were erected near the entrance to the Ma’aras Ha’Machpela.
Leaders from the Hebron community wished to thank the attendees for coming as well as the IDF and the police who provided security over the course of the weekend.
No major security incidents were reported.
