Today, we mark the yahrzeit of Rachel Imenu

“So Rachel died, and she was buried on the road to Ephrath, which is Bethlehem. And Jacob erected a monument on her grave; that is the tombstone of Rachel until this day.”

The holiness of her gravesite is expressed by its appearance alongside the Western Wall and other holy sites on various Judaica items.

In the photograph, we see a hexagonal table. At its center there is a Magen David and an illustration of Kever Rachel, Rachel’s Tomb. On one of the hexagon’s sides, we see an illustration of the Western Wall.

Interesting Facts

The Western Wall Plaza hosts approximately 60,000 people. It symbolizes the Jewish link to Jerusalem and serves as the synagogue closest to the remains of both Holy Temples.
The Western Wall's visible stones tell of its history from the time of the Holy Temples' ruin. The original Herodian stones are distinct from the others in size and in their unique borders.
The building style of "grading" used when layering the Western Wall's stones, teaches us that the Temple Mount's walls were not perpendicular but marginally sloping.
