An HonestReporting Project

Patriarchs' Cave
Hevron

Description

A visit to Ma'arat HaMachpela (the Cave/Tomb of the Patriarchs) was a first time for most of the NSWJBD Mission (November, 2013) and proved to be absolutely riveting. David Wilder regaled the group with stories of the initial purchase of the land by Avraham Avinu and the history of the construction and administration by Jews, Christians, and Muslims over the centuries, up to the present day.
