Ein Zeitim – Tomb of Rabbi Kruspedai
Although we find no trace of his name in the Talmud, Rabbi Kruspedai is frequently mentioned in the Zohar.
Located about two miles from Zefat the grave of this Sage served as a prayer site for the Jews of Zefat who fled from Arab riots in the 1830s. "There we sat and also wept," wrote a witness from that period in a reference to the Psalmist's words about the Babylonian exile. "We prayed to G-d to save us in the merit of the tzaddikim."
Today, as well, Jews who visit Zefat to pray at the holy tombs include in their excursion a stop at the tomb of Rabbi Kurspedai in Ein Zeitim.
