This place is very holy to Jews. Jews have come here for centuries to pray. It is the place where the forefathers of the Jewish people are buried and the building is an ancient one - built during the roman period.

Sadly Hebron is now a city predominantly occupied by tens of thousands of Arabs, most who want to see the Jewish people gone, yet they will not give in to terror and violence, and will continue to develop and grow the Jewish homeland.

I saw this as part of a tour of the West Bank. We were able to visit the mosque but not the synagogue as services were going on. The mosque was so-so but we were able to see Abraham’s tomb from a distance.

Touring Hebron was also very enlightening and pretty depressing. Very glad that I saw it, however.

This second holiest site in Israel for the Jewish people is an excellent place to visit. The building was built 2000 years ago and still is in great shape. The tomb markers are off limits to non-Muslims but can be viewed via windows. Due to tensions only half of the site is open to Jews, while the other half is open to Muslims most of the year. The regular bus service from Jerusalem's Central Bus Station is the perfect way to travel there if you do not have a car.

Excellent and holy place to visit. It is safe. Strong security is there. Muslims and Jews are separated there, by different entrances, so quarreling does not exist there. You might get asked your religion, but that is normal in Palestinian tourist sites. Arabs enter one area while non Palestinians (including non Arab tourists, including most Westerners) enter on the Jewish side.

It had been many years since I visited the Cave of the Patriarchs, or Mearat Hamechpela as it is called in hebrew.
The site is amazing at the same time as is historical, the building is magnificente and remnant of the Herodian period, you can visit the jewish side as the muslims have a different entrance, due to security considerations.
Normally the place is full of jewish people praying to the Patriarchs, and we also received a very interesting explanation by a local person that has visited more of the place, as today the lower parts are closed to the public.

In all the world, there is no place I love and celebrate my Creator more than in Hebron at the graves of Adam & Eve, Abraham & Sarah, Jacob & Leah, and Isaac & Rebecca at the Cave of the Patriarchs.
Throughout the ages and in the Bible it is known and highly praised for the sacred place it is!
Also nearby is the Tomb/Graves of Jesse the father of King David and Ruth.
I will return here over and over again!
