Tens of thousands of Jews visited Hebron on the Sabbath commemorating Abraham’s purchase of the Cave of Patriarchs, breaking a record.

A record-breaking 35,000 Jews were in Hebron last weekend to celebrate Shabbat Chayei Sarah, during which Abraham’s purchase of the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron is recounted in the weekly Torah portion.

Watch this amazing drone footage of thousands of Jews descended on the 2,000-year-old structure for Sabbath prayers, which included vibrant singing and dancing.

It’s awe-inspiring to watch!
