Best Times for Kevarim Shopping

Filed under: Blog Torah — Reb Moshe @ 4:13 am

The best times according to the Arizal to pray at holy kevarim is during the day before Rosh Chodesh (new jewish month) and the 15th of the month. This is because on the 15th is Rosh Chodesh for those in the Garden of Eden as is known in Kabbalah. On the day of Rosh Chodesh here in earth, the Tzaddikim are known not to have as great a presence by their grave. Yesterday, I gave myself an extra push because of this to pray in Meron. After the 15th we don’t stare at the moon but before this we can glance at it. How wondrous are the ways of Hashem and the Torah.


  1. on the 15th itself do we look at the moon? I’ve never learned this halachah/kabbalah teaching.. where can i see more about it?

  2. You can read more by Rabbi Yehudah Pesia the great kabblah master. Also the Ari in Shaar Ha Shoreshim. Until you can no longer say the prayer for the moon.
