Your Prayer Request Delivered to Holy Burial Sites

Click here to learn the importance of Praying At Holy Gravesites.

Click here for FREE DELIVERY of your prayer request. Your prayer requests can be brought directly to the gravesites of the greatest kabbalists of all time and other holy sages whose resting places are here in Safed. We escort visitors to gravesites of the kabbalists in Safed at least once a week and will take your prayers along.

Click here for SPECIAL DELIVERY of your prayer request. If you wish your prayer to be delivered quickly, or on a specific date or to a specific gravesite, this can only be done by making a small donation. This option also includes gravesites situated outside of Safed.
