On our first trip to Israel we went to Bethlehem on a Friday afternoon when the Tomb of Rachel was closed for the Sabbath. This time we didn't want to miss it. The Tomb of Rachel is near Bethlehem, very close to Checkpoint 300--on the...More

The mother of Benjamin, the last of the tribe of Israel. Close by the wall built by Israel to separate Palestine from Israel so a little tense. Worth visiting but you have to ask as it's not part of most tours

Holy place for Jews, Christians and Muslims, Rachel's Tomb has significance for women having prayers for health and wealth.

Interesting site but not much to see, basically a cupboard with cloth. Easy access by bus 163. Surrounded by concrete walls, the place crowded with weeping,nodding women. Just a sad place. So thankful Jesus conquered the grave. We have hope not dispair!!

Rachel's tomb is now surrounded by the appalling Wall which Israel is building on Palestinian land in the Occupied Terrritories. It is therefore not visitable

Crazy to think that one of the Matriarchs is right on front of you. You feel the closeness when you are there. Seems like everyone connects to Rachel.

The Tomb of Rachel is part of the history of the Jews and is maintained by the Israeli authorities and is more like a fortress. Millions of dollars have been invested in order to be able to travel there under proper security and safety. This...More

One of the holiest places in Israel, this is where Rachel is buried. Whenever I go to Israel, I visit Kever Rachel to pray.

Yes, no problem at all. If you are using GPS, you may have to disable the territories prohibition function even though you are not going to the territories.
