Tomb of Rabbi Yohanan ben Zakkai

Religious Site in Tiberias

Rabbi Yohanan ben Zakkai, Judaism's most eminent 1st-century sage, played a central role in replacing animal sacrifices – the raison d'être of the Temple in Jerusalem, destroyed in 70 CE – with prayer. His grave site is a just few metres down the hill from the grave of Cordova-born sage the Rambam.
