Hundreds visited Hevron on Monday for the 122nd Yahrtzeit of Rebbetzin Menucha Rachel Slonim, the granddaughter of Chabad founder Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi of Russia, who passed away in 1888 at the age of 89.

She is the closest personality to the families of Chabad hasidic leaders who is buried in Israel.

Menucha realized her childhood dream to immigrate to the Holy Land when her brother in law, the rabbi known as Tzemach Tzedek assigned her and her husband, Rabbi Ya'akov Coli Slonim to strengthen the Chabad community in Hevron, where she led the community for 50 years. She is the subject of many tales of miracles and wonders.

Special qualities were attributed to her grave, but the ancient cemetery was destroyed under Jordanian control. It was restored in the 1970's, and visits on the anniversary of her death resumed in 1982.

Bus children into Hebron
Great! Now there needs to be funding to bring Israeli children here from Tel Aviv. Let them see mearas haMachpela. They think it's far away, knowing almost nothing.
