Guided tours Hebron

Come and visit the Tomb of the Patriarchs, otherwise known as the Cave of Machpelah, and have history come alive as Rabbi Tovia Singer guides you through the enormous biblical significance of not only this location but Hebron as a whole. The Cave of Machpelah first appears in Genesis chapter 23 where Abraham secures the purchase of the cave as a burial place for his wife, Sarah, from Ephron the Hittite. In Joshua 14:13 Joshua blesses Caleb, son of Jephunneh, and assigned Hebron to him as his portion. In 2 Samuel chapter 2, following the death of Saul, David moves to Hebron and is anointed king of Judah. Hebron is also the location of the tomb of Ruth and Jesse. According to Genesis, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Sarah, Rebekah, and Leah are entombed at Machpelah. For this reason, Hebron is a very special destination on Tanakh Tours.
