Resting Place of Rebbetzin Menuchah Rachel Slonim

Rebbetzin Menuchah Rachel Slonim, who emigrated with her family to Hebron from Russia in 1845, was revered by both her Jewish and Arab neighbors for her piety and wisdom. She was believed to be endowed with unique spiritual powers, and Hebronites regularly sought her blessing, counsel, and guidance.

For many decades, Jews were not allowed access to this righteous woman’s burial place in the Chabad cemetery of Hebron. Through the tireless efforts of Rabbi Danny Cohen it was recently made accessible to Jews, and a yeshivah was established at Rebbetzin Menuchah Rachel’s gravesite. Efforts to refurbish an old building on the premises, and to use it for the yeshiva, are nearly complete.
