Guide for touring the holy sites in E”Y
A first hand description of the burial sites of the tzaddikim of Eretz Yisrael,
“the holy Avos…Prophets, Tannaim and Amora’im and other Gedolim of later generations…”
This sefer provides a specific coordinate for the burial site of each of the tzaddikim mentioned in this sefer, passages from the Torah repeated in their names to be recited at their respective tombs, and a prayer to be recited at the burial sites of tzaddikim.
For hundreds of years, Diaspora Jewry treasured this sefer and cherished it dearly in their intense yearning to revisit their homeland and draw close to the tzaddikim laid to rest Eretz Yisroel.
In the preface to his sefer, the author reveals that he traveled personally to Eretz Yisrael and marked the coordinates of various tombs based on his personal observations. Among the dozens of tombs that he mentions are Me’aras Hamachpeilah in Chevron, Kever Rachel in Bethlehem, Yosef’s Tomb in Shechem, Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai’s tomb in Meron, Rabbi Yehonasan ben Uziel’s tomb in Amuka “at the foot of the mountain”, Rabbi Akiva and the Rambam’s tombs in Teveria, and the tombs of various sages in Jerusalem.
The sefer also includes prayers for redemption from exile and the consolation of Zion and Jerusalem.
In the last pages of the present edition of Yichus
Hatzaddikim are three prayers composed by Rabbi Yehuda Aryeh of Modena.
