Maimonides (the “Rambam”) is one of the greatest Jewish sages ever.
He was both a philosopher, Astronomer, Phycisian, and a Torah Scholar.
According to tradition Maimonides died in Egypt but asked not to be buried in Egypt and so quoted Patriarch’s Jacob last words: “Do not bury me in Egypt” (Genesis 47:29).
Being so, a camel brought his body to Tiberias, where he is buried to this day.
The site is a popular pilgrimage destination among religious Jews.
