“Joseph’s tomb” is a funerary monument on the outskirts of Shechem (modern “Nablus”), near Tell Balata . Since the 4th century the site is venerated as the burial place of Joseph (Joshua 24:32). Although it is under the jurisdication of the Palestinian Authority, occasionally Jewish pilgrim still visit the site. The site was burnt and vandalized several times by locals of Nablus, and so It is not certain that it always is accesible.

Shechem is in the West Bank, near Samaria-Sebasty . Contact me for a proposal of a full day tour in the West Bank that will also include a visit to “Joseph’s Tomb” in Shechem, with a Palestinian guide.
