Safed, Tiberias & Mt. Meron

Tour’s Program


Our tour begins northbound passing Herzliya and Netanya along the Mediterranean coast Israel taking a turn inland passing through the Plain of Armageddon approaching Megiddo. (Chronicles II 35:20-27).
We take a visit to the City of Teberius, situated on the coast of the sea of Galilee. Tiberius, a first century city built by King Herod where archaeological excavations have discovered structures dating back to the Mishnah and Talmud periods. We take a visit to two ancient burial grounds of two known Jewish sages. First of all, Rabbi Meir Baal HaNes and secondly Moses Ben Maimon.

Rabbi Meir Baal Hanes, seen by many as a miracle worker. Rabbi Meir was a pupil of Rabbi Akiva. His burial ground is one of the most visited in the country. His burial ground was destroyed by an earthquake in 1337, however two stone pillars of the tomb survived the earthquake. A new structure has been built, and today you will see that the two original stone pillars have been incorporated into it. From a distance, you can see the distinctive blue and white domes of the tomb.
There are two separate prayer areas, one for women and one for men, as well as there is a study for Askenazim and Sephardim. Nearby we have vendors selling religious souvenirs, candles, books and posters of Rabbi Meir.

Moses Ben Maimon was commonly known as Maimonides, a medieval Sephardic and Jewish philosopher who became one of the most prolific and influential Torah scholars of the Middle Ages. He is known as the author of the fourteen volumes of the Mishne Torah. Maimonides died in Egypt December 12,1204. His last wish was to be buried in Tiberius in the lower Galilee.

We proceed with our journey entering the city Safed, situated on a hill and known as one of the four Holy cities in Israel. We take a walk through the narrow lanes of this old historical city, visiting The Ari Ashkenazi Synagogue, the Isaac Luria center, and the Artist’s quarter.

Our journey continues at Mount Meron. Where the burial ground of Simeon bar Yochai (Rashbi)
lies. Rasbi wrote the Zohar, a compilation about the Kabbalah movement. The Zohar is understood to be written by Rashbi while hiding from the Romans following the destruction of the Second Holy Temple. Rassbi died in Lag B’omar, on the day a plague ended taking the lives of Rabbi Akiva’s young students. His grave is where Lag B’omer celebrations take place each year. Thousands of Jews gather together with bonfires, dancing and celebrations. One special tradition is to give their three year old sons their first haircut.
Prayer takes place for both men and women in separate areas. Surrounding Rashbi’s tomb there a re stalls selling religious mementoes, Head coverings, religious books and artefacts.
