The Cave of Shem and Ever in Safed


According to the Midrash, this is the cave where Shem and Ever (son and grandson of Noach) were studying Torah. Furthermore, Avraham and Yitzchak used to study here as well.

Today we find a building covering the original cave. The location in the Old City of Safed is used as a Synagogue but only open for a short period of time during the day.
