Hebron

To visit Hebron is to steep yourself in Jewish history as you walk in the footsteps of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, Joshua, King David and the Maccabees.

The gigantic Tomb of the Patriarchs and Matriarchs attests to the antiquity of Hebron’s traditions – its walls date back at least 2,000 years. This tomb, and Jewish presence in the city throughout many centuries, gave Hebron the status of one of the “four holy cities” of the Land of Israel.

In the 19th century, a group of Chabad Hassidim also made their home here. The sacred traditions and history of Hebron come alive at many sites in the city. In addition to the Cave of Machpela, the tomb of Avner Ben-Ner, King David’s commander, is also a place of prayer.

The Jewish Quarter’s Avraham Avinu synagogue was built the Middle Ages; it was restored after the Jewish community was reestablished following the 1967 Six Day War.
Beit Hadassah, a clinic founded in the early 20th century, now houses a museum as well as apartments.
Tel Rumeida is another Jewish section of Hebron, where excavations have revealed remains from the time of the kings of Judah, including the city gate.
