Pilgrimage To The Baba Sali's Tomb

Every year, tens of thousands of believers, most of them of Moroccan origin, arrive in the town of Netivot, where the Baba Sali is buried.

There they have a one-day festival including prayers, candle tossing into a bonfire, festive meals, and amulet trade. Rabbi Israel Abuhatzeira, aka the Baba Sali, was a leading rabbi and kabbalist of Moroccan origin who gained thousands of followers due to the belief that he brought about miracles and healing.

He died in 1984 and his tomb in the town of Netivot (southern Israel) has become a shrine.
