    This tomb in not the kever of Mordechai and Esther, regardless of what their local tradition says. The real kever is in Eretz Yisrael, in the north Galil. Mordechai went up from Persia to Eretz Yisrael at the end of the 70 years of golus, and lived in Eretz Yisrael for many years, where he was a member of the Sanhedrin and the Anshei Kneses Hagedola. There is no record that he ever returned to Persia, or that his bones were taken there for buriel.

    They are like babies. They wanna be able to threaten everyone and get away with it. Just like they are trying to do now with their nuclear toys. Same now as they were then, but probably worse. And they just keep proving it again & again.

    sheer and utter nonsense

    I hope you guys realize that this is nonsense. Not that I particularly like the Iranian leadership, but for the record they fully acknowledge the role Mordechai and Esther and the jews and they teach everyone, locals and tourists alike the real history. If you visit the local Hamadan municipalities’s website you will see it for yourself.

    Please verify these reports before you publish sensationalist nonsense and get the proletariat all riled up.

    Your parents visit a building that they were told is the kever. It is not. I have been to the kevarim in Eretz Yisrael. The kevarim were identified by the Ari Zal. How could Mordechai be buried in Iran? Was he not a member of Anshei Kneses Hagedola? Did the Anshei Kneses Hagedola ever meet in Iran? Did the Sanhedrin ever meet in Iran? What naarishkeit!

    I think you’re the am ha’aretz over here it says in the megilla that mordechai wass led into galus to shushan habira(so by that point you cant prove that he was buried in israel) even tho they might have taken mordechai’s bonesto eretz israel(i don’t know where hes buried)

    I’m an iranian jew. I know for sure that 90% of people dont even know what purim is its just few of anti jews who find something about jews and right away connect that subject with israel and try to make a big deal out of it.I know for sure that the tomb of esther is protected by goverment and it is one of the sites that tourists go to see from all over the world no one will touch it.
