VIDEO: Israeli Rabbi Visits Graves Of Mordechai, Esther, & Others In Iran


Rabbi Yisroel Meir Gabey, a man known to travel the globe to try and fix neglected Kevarim, just returned from visiting Israel’s most bitter enemy, Iran. There, he visited the Kevarim of Mordechai and Esther, the Kever of Chavakuk Hanavi, Daniel Hanavi, and other Kevarim.

Despite the many dangers involved, Rabbi Gabey has previously visited many Arab countries to try and save graves of Tzadikim.
He states that he wears his clothing, dressed as a Charedi Jew from Eretz Yisroel, wherever he goes. He states that he has never had any problems, and he never feels that his life is in danger. Sometimes he is questioned by locals as to what he is doing there. He responds that he is there to pray at the graves, and many times they respond “please pray for us too”.

  1. I hate to be cycnical to a dedicated and devoted person,
    But isn’t it mefurash in Tanach (Daniel, Nechemia) that Mordechai and Daniel went back to help build the second beis hamikdash or Ezra’s going back later to help politically fight the arab resistance.

    Esther, maybe, but the other’s are not buried in Iran (although Yechezkial is buried in Iraq)
