Chance to visit a holy place.
After the Western Wall and the Mt of Olives, Rachel's Tomb is the 3rd holiest site for Jews in Jerusalem. Located about a 10-minute drive from the center of the city, the tomb today lies in a special security area near the entrance to Bethlehem. Access is by private car (plenty of parking) or by Egged bus 163. Look for the men and women giving out the mystical red thread bracelets that have been wrapped around the tomb 7 times--Madonna believes they'll bring good fortune to the wearer!
