Rachel's Tomb It is located in the outskirts of Bethlehem – Ephrath road


On the outskirts of Canaan, Rachel, beloved wife of Jacob, went into a difficult Birth with her second son, Benjamin. She died during childbirth on month Cheshvan 11 .the Bible records the event:

"And Rachel died, and was buried on the way to Ephrath, which is Bethlehem. And Jacob set a pillar upon her grave: that is the pillar of Rachel's grave unto this day." — "וַתָּמָת רָחֵל וַתִּקָּבֵר בְּדֶרֶךְ אֶפְרָתָה הִוא בֵּית לָחֶם. וַיַּצֵּב יַעֲקֹב מַצֵּבָה עַל קְבֻרָתָהּ הִוא מַצֶּבֶת קְבֻרַת רָחֵל עַד הַיּוֹם" Genesis 35,19-20

The actual tomb consists of a rock with 11 stones upon it, one for each of the 11 sons of Jacob who were alive when Rachel died in childbirth. Over the centuries, the rock was covered by a dome supported by four arches.

There is an ancient tradition regarding the 'segulah' (charm), a scarlet thread that is tied around the left wrist as a protection against all forms of danger. This is done only at the Tomb of Rachel, because Rachel was considered the "eternal mother," caring for her people when they are ill Rachel is also deemed the perfect mediator for a pregnant woman, especially when she goes into the delivery room.


Believers in Kabbalah sometimes wrap red string around the tomb and then make it into bracelets that serve as talismans.

Our Red String Passes a special process and ancient prayers for blessing the thread at the Tomb of Rachel for protection from evil eye and success in various areas of life (Especially for birth process) that you should ask at the moment tying of the Red String
