RuneE at Visual Norway and the other Bench on Friday bloggers have trained me to be on the lookout for benches wherever I go.
(photos can be enlarged by clicking)While in Tiberias these past three weeks, I went up the mountain to visit the graves of some tsadikim (saintly men and women out of Jewish history).
Here at the tomb of our beloved Rabbi Akiva the benches overlook the Sea of Galilee.
Many come to the graves of the righteous to honor their memory and to pray for miracles of healing, for peace, etc.
May their prayers be heard.
Shabbat shalom to all.
