Safed, Tiberias & Mt. Meron - Tours in Israel

We begin by traveling north passed Herzliya and Netanya up the Mediterranean coast, then turn inland and travel through the plain of Armageddon where we can see Megiddo

We reach the city of Tiberias on the shores of the Sea of Galilee. Visit the grave of Rabbi Baal Hanes. He was believed to be a miracle worker, he was one of Rabbi Akivas pupils and his grave is one of the most visited grave sites in the country

Although the original structure which marked the grave was destroyed by an earthquake in 1337, two stone pillars remained marking the graves location. Today a new structure which was built in 1867 marks the Rabbis grave and the two original pillars have been incorporated into the tomb

At the grave site there are separate prayer areas for men and women and study areas for both Ashkenazim and Sephardim. Near the grave site are vendors selling religious souvenirs, candles, books and posters of revered Rabbis

We visit the tomb of Rabbi Moshe Ben Maimon (Rambam) who penned the fourteen volumes of the Mishne Torah and is respected as a great sage, philosopher, scholar and doctor. Rambam passed away in Egypt in c.1235 and his final wish was to be brought to the shores of the Kinneret to be buried in Tiberias

We continue on to Safed, a hill top city and one of four holy cities in Israel. We walk through the historic city and the narrow alley ways of the Old City, we visit the Ari Hakodosh synagogue, the Isaac Luria Visitor Center and the Artists Quarter

Our next stop is at Mount Meron where Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai (Rashbi) a 2nd century sage is buried. Rashbi is believed to have passed away on Lag Baomer, the same day that a plague ended which had taken the lives of Rabbi Akivas pupils. Rashbis grave is the site of Lag Baomer celebrations each year when thousands of Jews gather and light bonfires, dance, rejoice and also traditionally give their three year old sons their first haircut

The tomb is used for prayer both by men and women in separate areas and outside the tomb you can find stalls selling religious mementos, head coverings, religious books and artifacts
