Kever Binyomin

by Reb Akiva at Mystical Paths

Travel just east of Kfar Saba, a bit past the Industrial Park, and you find an old building and courtyard off by the side of the road…

Hidden by trees and an ancient crumbling wall barely supported with some concrete patching, it’s the kever (tomb) of our holy forefather Binyomin ben Yaakov!

Surrounded by a shaded ancient courtyard, it’s a neatly maintained place of kedushah and contemplation.

The interior is small, divided into a men’s and women’s section.  You could just barely squeeze a minyan inside, if you tried hard.

Even so, it’s clearly frequently visited, as evidenced by the tehilim and sifrei kodesh on the kever…

It’s a small domed room, though the dome is also showing it’s age (even if it’s nicely painted)…

And with a few tefilot said at this holy place, we take our leave.

Oh, that is so beautiful. I want to visit there. Does the train go to Kfar Saba? Is it possible to visit without a car?

There is a train to Kfar Saba, it would be a taxi ride from there to the Kever - which is behind the old industrial park.
