Tens of thousands flocked to the holy city of Hevron for the annual Chol Hamoed Pesach celebrations Monday.

The event featured performances by leading Israeli and Jewish music artists, among them Mendy Gerufi, Amir Benayoun, Aryeh and Gil Gatt, Haim Yisrael, Udi Davidi, and others.

Pilgrims went to the City of the Forefathers to enjoy the music and to pray at the Cave of the Patriarchs - one of the holiest sites in Judaism and the burial place of the Biblical patriarchs and matriarchs.

Earlier Monday, at least 50,000 worshipers gathered at the Kotel (Western Wall) in Jerusalem for the annual Birkat Kohanim (Priestly Blessing) ceremony.
