Preserving Kever Rachel (Rachel’s Tomb)
As a result of the campaign launched by the ECF, Kever Rachel is now open 24 hours a day. Jewish visitation rights to this holy site were practically null. Through ECF’s funding, free weekly buses take visitors to this holy site and Melave Malkas (post-Shabbat festive meals) are hosted there. As a result of these efforts, the Israeli government now subsidizes Jewish bus tours to Kever Rachel and organizes educational programs there. Once again, Rachel’s children can hold celebrations at this sacred place and the broken-hearted can go there to pray. As the prophet Jeremiah promised, “Your (Rachel’s) endeavors will be rewarded…your children will return to their borders.”

Me’arat HaMachpela
(Cave of the Patriarchs)/Hevron –Kiryat Arba
Hevron/Kiryat Arba is one of the four cities in Israel that the Talmud cites as holy. Our matriarchs and patriarchs lived in Hevron and are buried in Me’arat HaMachpela which was purchased by Avraham as a burial site for Sarah. King David ruled in Hevron for 7 years. In 1929, the Jewish community of Hevron was tragically massacred and decimated by Arab terrorists. After the Six Day War, Jewish life was once again renewed and revitalized there. The ECF currently supports the Kollel at Me’arat HaMachpela, helps with the maintenance of the Cave, supports a children’s library in town and helps the needy and indigent of this holy city. In 2004, the ECF contributed to the dedication of a Sefer Torah written in memory of Rebbetzin Menucha Rochel, a pious leader in Hevron in the 1800s.

As part of it's ongoing support of Beit El, the Eshet Chayil Foundation collaborated with Arutz Sheva Educational Radio, in 1997, to create The Eshet Chayil Radio Program which is still ongoing today.

Tombs of Joseph and His Sons
At the start of the intifada of 2000, terrorists decimated and destroyed the tombs of Joseph and his sons Ephraim and Menashe. Rabbi Hillel Lieberman, a 36 year old American citizen and father of seven, was brutally shot and murdered by Arab terrorists while he was trying to rescue Torahs and other holy books at Joseph’s Tomb. Thanks to the efforts of the ECF, the holy artifacts that were salvaged were transported to Rachel’s Tomb (Rachel was Joseph’s mother) where they are currently displayed and safeguarded.
