Jews Seek Succor at Matriarch's Tomb

On the anniversary of the Jewish matriarch Rachel’s death, devout Jews from around the world bring their prayers to her tomb.

By the thousands they flocked to the outskirts of Bethlehem last weekend – mostly religious Jewish men, women and children – spilling out of buses and flowing into the heavily fortified, concrete-encased shrine they refer to as "Kever Rachel,” or “Rachel's Tomb.”
