History

Jewish presence in Hebron dates back over 3,800 years. The Bible elaborately relates Abraham's purchase of the field and cave of Machpela. This is the first Jewish acquisition in the Land of Israel. The founders of the Jewish nation are buried here.

Around 2,000 years ago, Herod, king of Judea, built the structure atop the cave complex - the only intact building from that era. Today, the Tomb of the Patriarchs and Matriarchs attracts countless people from around the world.
