“Rachel’s Tomb” is a sacred monument on the side of the road between Jerusalem to Bethlehem, where an old Jewish tradition locates the burial of Rachel, the wife of Jacob.

And Rachel died, and was buried on the way to Ephrath, which is Bethlehem. And Jacob set a pillar upon her grave: that is the pillar of Rachel’s grave unto this day.” (Genesis 35:19-20).

Today the site is located next to the Palestinian Authority zone of Bethlehem, and so access to the site is by a narrow walled road, and the site seems more like a bunker, and is visited only by ultra orthodox Jews.
