has. So many are visiting his grave, lighting candles there and praying there. If this is a mistake how did it come about? I see there are many very, old looking and badly damaged headstones in this Beis Hachayim. Wow!

Very intriguing

I had the great zechus to daven there (in the beautifully reconstructed ohel), and the experience was unique and quite powerful. Even if the Tzaddik is really interred several meters away, the whole area is indescribably special. Go visit the kevarim of our Rebbeim in Russia and Ukraine if you can! If not, may Moshiach make it possible ASAP to meet them and learn from them “for real.”

Could we get a little more info on the story here? What are the pictures of? And how could the actual kever be 4 *meters* away… the building is bigger than that? And is there really a different name on the matzeivah? Who’s?

4 meters is nothing

I was once at what was supposed to be the tziyun of Gid’on. It was explained that the Tanach says he is buried somewhere in the immediate vicinity, so they built the tziyun on top of a hill from which one can see the whole area, and therefore one can definitely see his burial place, wherever it may be.

Such is his zechus

The Berdichever was so holy that he could be buried anywhere else in the world and the mispallelim will still have their berachos answered. Such is his zechus.

Moshe Rabbenu's tziyun

I heard from the Bobover (45) Rebbe that the reason Hashem buried Moshe Rabbenu at an undisclosed location was so that the whole world would be his tziyun, and we can talk to him wherever we are.

(However we’re told that Yirmiyohu went to Mt Nevo to inform Moshe of the churbon; according to this he could have done so anywhere.)
