Rachel's Tomb is the burial place of Rachel, the wife of Jacob, who died here giving birth to Benjamin.
Over the years, Rachel's Tomb has been a place of pilgrimage for Jews,
especially Jewish women unable to give birth.
Jewish tradition teaches that Rachel weeps for her children and that
when the Jews were taken into exile, she wept as they past by her
grave on the way to Babylonia.
It is located in Judea just outside of the Jerusalem neighborhood of Gilo
on the road to Bethlehem along the Biblical Bethlehem-Efrat Road.The current domed structure was built by Sir Moses Montifiore.
