Thousands of Jews, from all over the country, entered tonight, Wednesday, the village of Kifl Harsa, aka Timnat Heres, in the Shomron to pray at the kever of Yehoshua Bin Nun on the occasion of his Hilula.

The holy site was opened thanks to a joint initiative of the Shomron Regional Council and and the directorate of the Holy Places along with the IDF and police. The mispallelim also visited the grave of Colev and the grave of Nun, the father of Yehoshua, who, according to tradition, are also located in the village of Kifl Hares.

Among those present were Yossi Dagan, chairman of the Shomron Regional Council, deputy chairman David Ben-Zion and Shomron religious council chairman Moshe Cohen.

Yossi Dagan, the head of the Shomron Regional Council, said that “more than 10,000 Jews from all over the country, religious, secular and traditional are here, walking the streets, going from kever to kever. Among others, they are visiting the resting place of Yehoshua, who was the first chief of staff, bequeathed the land of Israel to Am Yisroel and was one of the spiritual fathers of the Jewish people.

“At a time like this we come here to the resting place of Yehoshua, who, with Colev, was able to stand in front of the ten other spies and say ‘the Land is very good,we can successfully go up and take possession of it.’ We draw from the energies of Yehoshua; we are empowered by him.”
