These are just a few of the kivrei tzadikim ("tombs of a tzadik"), all of which are worthwhile to visit. Others include King David on Har Zion ("Mount Zion"), just outside the walls of the old city of Jerusalem (it is apparently really a crusader tomb and not King David's, nevertheles, the prayers of many thousands of Jews over the centuries have turned it into a holy place). Then there is the tomb of Shmuel Hanavi (the prophet Samuel), just outside the Jerusalem suburb of Ramot, and the tomb of Baba Sali (Rebi Yisroel Abuhatzera), the Moroccan tzadik who lived and was buried in 1984 in the Negev town of Netivot, a half an hour north of Be'er Sheva. One could easily spend months traversing the land and praying at the tombs of the righteous. In fact, one of the beauties of Israel is that it is full of the tombs of tzadikim who have lived and passed on here, and the physical beauty of the land exudes the spiritual beauty of their righteousness.
