Thus Rachel died. She was buried on the road to
Efrat—now Beit Lechem

Genesis 35:19 (The Israel Bible™)

וַתָּמָת רָחֵל וַתִּקָּבֵר בְּדֶרֶךְ אֶפְרָתָה הִוא בֵּית לָחֶם
Hear the verse in Hebrew

va-ta-MAT ra-KHAYL va-ti-ka-VAYR b’-DE-rekh ef-RA-tah HEE BAYT LA-khem
In this week’s Bible portion, Jacob buries his beloved wife Rachel in Beit Lechem. According to tradition, Rachel was intentionally buried there, on the side of the road on which the Jews were forcibly marched into exile following the destruction of the first Temple. At that devastating moment in Jewish history, the downtrodden people found comfort in Rachel’s holy resting spot as she entreated God’s mercy towards His people.

We pray for the arrival of the Messiah who will lead the dispersed Jews along that same route, again passing Rachel’s grave as they are ultimately led back to the Land of Israel.
