70,000 pilgrims expected to visit Rachel's Tomb

Tens of thousands of people arrived at Rachel's Tomb in Bethlehem to mark the anniversary of her death. Some 70,000 people are expected to visit the site over the next 24 hours.


For the first time in 17 years, the anniversary falls on a Saturday, which is why the pilgrimage has been spread across several days. (Kobi Nahshoni)
