The Benefit of Being in Eretz Yisrael

Yesterday I had the merit to visit Hevron and the resting place of our Patriarchs, Avraham, Yitzkah and Yaakov, our Matriarchs Sarah, Rivka, and Leah. One of the most special aspects of making aliya is to be right here, walking the same ground as all those in the Chumash. Visiting the same places they did and being able to connect with them in a very real way.

Did you know that you can have a Bris Millah at Maharas HaMachpela, right next to Avraham Avinu the first Jew to fulfill this mitzvah? All the details including arranging the Mohel, minyan if you need, seuda can be arranged for you through very special Yidden who live in Hebron.

It is easy to get caught up with the frustration of the bureaucracy, but if you take a little time out, an hour or two or a day, you can have the opportunity to re-charge by visiting the Holiest places in the world.

If you are unable to get to Maharas HaMachpela but would like some tefillos offered there on your behalf, please be in touch. Did you know that all Tefillos ascend to Heaven via the Cave of Machpela?
