Where & When?



Where is קבר רחל 

According to the some ראשונים
(רלב"ג, חזקוני, *רמב"ן פרשת ויחי)

קבר רחל is not in בית לחם
(south of Yerushalayim)

but in רמה north of Yerushalayim-
(Ramat Shlomo-Shuafat area)


When is her Yahrzeit?
According to Rashi it's not on י"א חשוון

1) According to the פסיקתא רבתי, Rochel  died 
between Pesach & Shavuos
 when the ground was dry.
(see Rashi Breishis 48:7 who agrees with the Pesikta)

2) The ילקוט שמעוני writes, she died on the 11th of Cheshvan.

3) In one of the dead sea scrolls,* it is written that
she died on the 10th of Teves.

The Rabonim* who will be Davening
for you tomorrow at Kever Rochel are 
חושש לספק ספיקה  :)

*24 Hours of Tehillim on Your Behalf
Send a Kvittel and be included in the Tefillos for 24 Hours
Shidduchim | Parnassah | Yeshous | Children | Success


*Sefarim Chitzonim, not necessarily  Chazal
