What's in your backyard?

There was a small news bite in the Israeli media which most people may not have even noticed. Today, there was a court hearing to decide the fate of a grave that was recently discoverd.

The story goes something like this. Mitch Pilcer owns a bed and breakfast in Tzipori in the lower Galilee. Business was going well so he decided to expand the hotel. But when they started digging in his yard they discovered something extraordinary.

Right there in his backyard was the grave of none other than Rabbi Yehoshua Ben Levi ! It's still being investigated to see if things pan out and it really is the grave of the important Amora sage. But it just goes to show you that when you are living in a land that contains thousands of years of our history you'll never know what you'll discover right in your own backyard!

    How did they know exactly whose grave it is? Were there markings?

    That's why The Lubavitcher Rebbe forbade Jews to visit giant cemetery.

    "Mitch Pilcer told Arutz 7's Hebrew news journal that a tombstone for Rabbi Yehoshua Ben Levi was discovered on the site as he prepared to expand his facility. He added the letters on the tombstone were well preserved. Archaeologists he called examined the site, covered it up and examined it again a month ago."

    I think moxadox raised the right question how you can be so sure about whose grave it is?

    But one thing is preety sure is that you never know what is in your backyard...
