Thousands Streaming to Baba Sali Gravesite in Netivot [00:55]
Tens of thousands of people are streaming to the Negev town of Netivot to participate in annual ceremonies to mark the 28th year since the Baba Sali, Rabbi Yisrael Abuhatzeira, left this world. The "hilula" -- the annual memorial ceremony to mark the passing of the revered Torah sage -- is set to be held Thursday, the fourth day of the Hebrew month of Shevat, at his tomb. The Baba Sali, as Rabbi Yisrael ben Masoud Abuhatzeira was known, lived in the southern Israeli town upon his arrival from his native Morocco. A world-renowned Kabbalist, the Baba Sali transformed Netivot into the "Meron" of the south, receiving hundreds of thousands of people seeking his blessing during his lifetime. Many of his descendants were likewise endowed with special Kabbalistic gifts.

Morocco Video Review bit.ly Situated on the north western side of Africa and just a little over three hours flying time from London, Morocco offers visitors a charming combination of landscapes and culture. Separated from Europe by the Straits of Gibraltar it has all the charm of North Africa with a strong French colonial influence. From the colourful souks of Marrakech to the wide sandy beaches of Agadir, the surprises go on and on. Superb hotels and marvellous food make this an unforgettable holiday experience. Morocco offers much more than a traditional summer sun holiday. How many other places offer the variety of snow capped mountains, wide sandy beaches and the breathtaking scenery of the Sahara. For almost a thousand years Marrakech has been an imposing and dominant city. The first of Morocco's Imperial Cities, it was founded in 1062. In more modern times, Marrakech has become the commercial centre of the High Atlas and the Moroccan Sahara.
