Yonatan Ben-Uziel

Over the centuries the tradition developed that those seeking their soul-mates would be married within the year if they prayed at Ben-Uziel’s tomb

On this Page:

Yonatan Ben-Uziel was a disciple of the famed Second Temple era Rabbi Hillel. A man of great goodness and wisdom, over the centuries the tradition developed that those seeking their soul-mates would be married within the year if they prayed at Ben-Uziel’s tomb. Ironically, the sage himself died at a young age – a bachelor.

 

It is particularly significant to pray at the tomb on the anniversary of the rabbi’s death, on the Hebrew date of 26 Sivan in late spring. This is also an especially beautiful time to make the trip, because the tomb is located within the scenic Biriya Forest near the mystical city of Safed.

 

In keeping with Orthodox Jewish tradition, separation of men and women is maintained in the small, white-domed tomb building. But those seeking a match have been known to leave notes with names, emails and phone numbers to help the sage with his task!
