Tiberias: Tomb of Moses Maimonides (Rambam)

Permanent URI for this collection

The tomb of Moses Maimonides (Rambam), a famous Jewish philosopher from the Middle Ages, is located in Tiberias. The structure also includes, on a plaza outside, the tombs of Rabbis Isaiah Horowitz and Yochanan ben Zakai. The tomb of Rambam itself is divided into men’s and women’s sections with separate entrances. Men visiting the tomb must cover their heads. At the time these photos were taken (May 2023), several impromptu services were being held by pilgrims, so photos were restricted to signs and historical markers.
