More than 430 years ago, the first Rashbi hachnassas orchim group was formed to prepare for
the special day’s gigantic crowds. In 1998 Rabbi Yehoshua Biderman founded Yeshuos Rashbi
to continue this tradition. Last year Yeshuos Rashbi prepared for thousands of visitors and hosted
the single largest Seudah Hilulah for Rebbe Shimon Bar Yochai. We gave out over 15,000
portions; that is more than 1.5 tons of meat! 7500 bottles of soda! 55000 cups! 3000 chairs! 100
pots of Yerushalmi Kugel!

Every year the crowds increase and we are preparing even more. It is known that the kever of
Rebbe Shimon bar Yochi is steeped in ancient majesty. Everyone who visits the site feels a
strong spiritual stirring, an incredible longing to cleave to Hashem. The soul yearns to be with its
Creator; a pathway opens and stretches directly heavenward.
