In Hebrew, the name “Hebron” comes from the root “hibbur” which signifies connection and unity. In geographical terms, Hebron was a junction and market center between the northern mountains lush with grapes, the desert frontier in the south, where sheep are raised and grain is grown, and the western Judean foothills and their olive groves. The name also has a spiritual meaning, hinting at our connection with the Patriarchs who are buried there. Learn more about the beauty and spirituality of Hebron with an informative and unique eBook.
