Tours in Hevron

Come and visit the City of our Forefathers.
Hevron is the city that unites all of us as friends.
Hevron is the city that connects the past and the future.
The tour of Hevron begins at what is known as the "Field of the Machpela", the "gate" to the Cave of the Machpela. Here, we will retell how the field and the cave were acquired by Avraham Avinu. We will learn about the monumental building which Hordus built above the cave.

The highlight of the visit is praying at the gravesites of our forefathers: Avraham and Sarah, Yitzhak and Rivka, Yakov and Leah, our holy patriarchs and matriarchs. From there, we continue to the Avraham Avinu neighborhood to see the old Jewish quarter which is being revived. We will hear the wonderful story of the synagogue which bears the same name as the neighborhood itself. The next stop is Beit Romano, one of the most impressive buildings in the city, built by the Turkish merchant, Avraham Roman in the year 1879. The 130 year old building had various owners and functions throughout its history. For the past 25 years, the impressive structure, to which two additional floors have been built, has been the home of Yeshiva Shavei Hevron. From the height of the roof of the yeshiva, we will be able to look out on the whole expanse of Hevron. Our next stop will be at Beit Hadassah where a museum documenting the terrible Arab uprisings that were carried out against the Jews of Hevron in 1929. From there, we will walk up to Tel Romeida at the top of the hillside. Here a wall of the ancient city was uncovered from the Bronze Age, where the Biblical city of Hevron was located. Here, one can have a view of the city looking out over the rooftops of homes. Other sites that can't be missed: The graves of Ruth and Yishai, the old graveyard and more…. All of this is just a taste of what you will see and experience. You will most assuredly want to come again…
