A few years ago I posted a photo comparison of one of the best rolling stone tombs in Israel – before vandals destroyed it and after.  For convenience, here are those pictures of the Khirbet Midras tomb again.



A friend visited recently and passed on a few photos.  It looks like the tomb has been partially restored.  You might want to stop by next time you’re in the area.  Khirbet Midras is east of the road going from Azekah to Bet Guvrin.
