Jerusalem, Israel

A city in the Judean Hills, 36km. south of Jerusalem. Known also in the Bible as Kiryat Arba, Hebron is one of the most ancient cities in the Land of Israel. It is also one of the "patriarchal" cities, and one of the four Jewish holy cities since Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and their wives were buried there. Their tombs, in the Cave of Machpelah, are now a primary site of pilgrimage.
