Hillula for Ribi Yaakov Abuhatzeira Canceled

The annual pilgrimage to the grave of Ribbi Yaakov Abuhatzeira near Alexandria, Egypt has been canceled for the first time ever due to the Gaza War and the dangerous security situation right now, reports

The hillula will take place at other places around Israel for his Yahrtzeit on Tevet 20.

Also, many will go to the Rambam's grave in Tiveria, whose Yahrtzeit is also Tevet 20, with a special prayer service to annul the harsh decrees of war and lack of rain.
