20 Tishrei, 5769 (5th day of Chol HaMoed Sukkot)
Last Thursday we were in Hebron. I parked my car in Kiryat Arba and we walked to the Cave of the Patriarchs. On the way from Kiryat Arba to Hebron we passed "Beit Hashalom" (the house of peace):
After about a fifteen minute walk, we finally make it to the Cave of the Patriarchs (me'arat hamachpeilah):
We davenned Minchah inside. Saying the first blessing of the silent prayer, Avot, when you are standing so close to where they are buried brought tears to my eyes.
Sinai Tor among other musicians played outside of the Cave. For me the music was way to loud!
It was great to be in Hebron. I hope to visit there more often.
