Hundreds of people visit Rabbi Shimon's kever daily seeking solutions for their problems or just looking for a rejuvenation of their spirituality. He was a tanna and the author of the holy Zohar.

Rabbi Elazar ben Shimon

A Tanna and holy man, he was the son of Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai. He and his father hid in a cave for 12 years after they fled from the Romans during the Second Temple era. He is buried next to his father.

Hillel the Elder

Located behind Rabbi Shimon and down the hill about 30 feet, Hillel is buried in a cave with his wife and 30 of his students. He was the head of the Sanhedrin during the Second Temple era, many halachot are based on his school of thought. Hillel is well known for his famous statement in Pirkey Avot, "If I am not for myself, then who will be for me? And if I am only for myself, then what am I? And if not now, when?"

Yochanan the Sandler

A Tanna, his grave is located down the hill behind Rebbe Shimon's kever

Rav Yiba Saba and Rav Ada Saba
