The graves of the Rambam and Rabbi Yochanan ben Zakkai


Last Thursday, I went to the grave of the RAMBAM. I have done so quite a few times lately.

The RAMBAM (Maimonides, 1135 - 1204) in buried in Tiberias / northern Israel.

The grave of the Rambam in Tiberias / northern Israel.
The Mechitzah (separation between men and woman) goes right over the grave.
This is pretty new and I find it rather strange.
