Israel. The Tribe of Asher had the blessing to have prosperity at home in
their local environment and they had no real need to travel. Serah was a famous
daughter of Asher in the time of Jacob/Israel and she told him in a quiet
musical way when he was old that Joseph was alive and well in Egypt. She merited
to still be alive at the time of the redemption of the nation of Israel from
Egypt. Upon entering the land of Israel, Asher inherited tall palaces that
were considered to be even better than the lands which Yehuda inherited. It

Asher ben Yakov (Asher son of Jacob-Israel)
and Naftali Ben Yakov (Naftali son of Jacob-Israel) Kevers are located in
the same place about 10 kilometers slightly Southeast of Qiryat Shemona and
about 2.5 kilometers East from the current Lebanese border. This is a totally
unmaintained site (the area is being used as a cow pasture and the road maintenance
department has left some of there scrap behind). It is the general area shown
in photo #1. The tomb stones have been moved or shifted over the millennium.
The natural spring and other landmarks identify this location as well as the
fact that Devora The Prophetess and her husband Barak are buried only about
150 meters Northeast of this burial area beside the ruin of an ancient synagogue.
This geographic region itself is clean, pristine and beautiful.
