We first went in 1988. It is a very holy place. King David was an essential part of our history, and it's important to learn all about him, his role then, his role for our future.

This is a small room off of another room where rabbi’s are studying and praying. Men and women have separate entrances and it does get crowded. It would be interesting to know if there were actual remains in the tomb.
