Rosh Chodesh Av was the yahrzeit of Aaron HaKohen, and for the first time in three years, a number of Jews traveled to Petra, Jordan to be mispallel at the holy graveside of Aahon HaKohen.

Organizers had great cooperation from the Jordanian Ministry of Tourism, which provided Jordanian security forces to protect the group for the entire time.

The highlight of this emotional trip was when a minyan kohanim recited Birchas Kohanim by the kever, there was not a dry eye in the crowd.

The kever is located on top of the mountain and it is impossible to get there by car or bus, as you can only get there on a donkey.

The group of 50, returned home safely after all the tefillos was completed and everyone was on an emotional-high from this special day
