Selichot at Maarat HaMachpelah

Just a reminder to those of you in Israel:

Maarat HaMachpelah (including 'Ulam Yitzchak/ Issac's Hall') will be open entirely for Jews on the following upcoming dates:

The second day of Rosh Hashana, Wednesday, Oct. 1

For the annual mass selichot event before Yom Kippur- Monday, Oct. 6. (The event will begin at 6 PM with a pre-selichot tisch led by prominent Rabbanim, followed by 11 PM selichot.)

For Yom Kippur on Thursday, October 9th

For the Chol Hamoed Sukkot extravaganza, Wednesday - Thursday, October 15-16.

For further details please go to www.hebronfund.com.

When you're there make sure not to miss Ulam Yitzchak and the famous 'Opening to Gan Eden.' You'll see everyone crowding around it as soon as you get into the hall...the breeze that comes up from there is from the actual Cave of Machpelah itself (referred to as the entranceway to Gan Eden), and is therefore referred to in the midrash as the 'air of Gan Eden.'

Looking forward to seeing you there!
