Yahrzeit: יהושוע בין נון - Yehoshua Bin Nun

A phone number for those who live in Beitar Illit, Beit Shemesh, Bnei Brak or Jerusalem and would like to reserve space on a private bus traveling to Kever Yehoshua Bin Nun tomorrow night.


Tomorrow (Thursday) night is the Yahrzeit of the biblical Yehoshua Bin Nun (he took over leadership after Moshe died and led the Jews into Israel). Thousands of Jews will be traveling to his grave in a village called Timnat (Kefel) Hares. The village is located north of Ariel in the Shomron (Samaria).

Yehoshua Bin Nun belonged to the Tribe of Ephraim and was 42 years old when the Jews left Egypt. Later on, he married the famous prostitute Rachav from Jericho who had given shelter to the spies he had sent out.
