Summary

Ari's Tomb, located in the Old Cemetery of Tsefat, has a glassed-in portion containing an eternal flame. A tree grows from within the tomb, on which prayer notes are hung in plastic bags. On the Ari's death date, the fifth of Av, a ceremony is held at his tomb. Ari's Mikveh, built on top of a spring, is where it was believed the Ari immersed himself.
