Orthodox Jewish Heritage Route. Transfer Budapest - Bodrogkeresztur
During the pilgrimage, pilgrims visit the gravesites of late wonder rabbis, learn about the rabbis' lives, the legends surrounding their lives, the history, traditions and regional role of the former Jewish population of the towns they visit, and get the opportunity to experience the breathtaking scenery of Tokaj-Hegyalja.
Bodrogkeresztúr is fast becoming a major pilgrimage site for Jews around the world who want to pray at the grave of a rabbi in hopes of miraculous intervention.
The Hungarian village of Bodrogkeresztur is a pilgrimage site for thousands of Hassidic Jews every year, for there lived the venerated Rabbi Yeshayah Steiner, from whom the well-known Kerestir Hassidic dynasty originated.
Yeshaya Steiner, also known as Rebbe Shaya’la, lived in Bodrogkeresztúr (Yiddish: קערעסטיר) in the early 20th century. The Jews of Kerestir — the Yiddish name of this verdant village — were ardent believers in his wisdom. Rebbe Shaya’la gained fame as a miracle worker; tens of thousands of Central European Hasidic Jews visited his court regularly until his death in 1925. Miracles ascribed to him fill three books: They range from curing sick children to saving marriages.
