Israel Electric Corporation Leaves Moses in the Dark

“From Moses to Moses, there was none like Moses,” goes the rabbinic saying on the Biblical Moses and his namesake, the twelfth century philosopher and halachic authority Moses Maimonides. Author of the “Guide to the Perplexed” and other famous works the latter Moses brought enlightenment to the masses. But the Israel Electric Corporation has left him in the dark.

It has disconnected the electricity from his tomb and the surrounding complex in the northern Israel city of Tiberius. The site, a popular place of pilgrimage, is now open to visitors only during the daytime. According to this report the organization that runs the site owes the equivalent of $12,000 in unpaid bills.
