PostSubject: the raising of the dead   Mon Dec 03, 2007 4:42 pm

i know there is no disputing the dead being raised, but my wife and I have just been watching the da'vinci code (again)... and we got to discussing tombs and people that visit them and why.

one thing i mentioned was that even when dead, elisha's bones had the power to restore (in the book of kings).

are there any other examples in jewish history of any similar occurances.


many thanks

Steve

p.s. but only miracles worked by dead people/tombs/etc

It is a Jewish tradition of the Orthodox mainly on 33 of the Omer counting ( called Lag B'omer) to go to the grave of Rabbi Simeon bar Yochai. In the Talmud it states that on this day the plague which had wreaked havoc amoung the students of Rabbi Akiva ( thought to be the Messiah at one time) , ended, and it is a happy day of rememberance.


Rabbi Simeon bar Yochai is the author of a book on mysticism and Jewish mystic on this day visit his grave in Northern Israel, Meron. Mainly these are the Satmars, the very ultraorthodox. Many travel from Brooklyn NY USA, even for this day. It is also a tradition that a boys first haircut be performed at the gravesite and many a father takes his young son ( around 3yrs old) to do this. They believe this brings them 'luck'.

I am sure if you google lag B'omer and Rabbi Simeon bar Yochai you will find all sorts of info, also google the word miracles with it and see what you find. Smile

Many also visit the tombs of the patriarches, when politics allow. This is in ancient Shechem, now called Nablus in Palestinian hands.Frusteration time

I am sure there are many stories to be told about visits there.

Its interesting to see that it isnt just catholics that do this grave visiting thing.

I take it from they very "happy" face icon that you dont particularly like this the practice Psalms?
