"What Happened To Yocheved?"

(Picture courtesy of Fayga M.)

On Shabbos a person at shul asked me if I knew what happened to Yocheved, the mother of Moshe Rabbeinu. While I didn't recall any information about this in the Chumash or in any midrashim, I did recall the picture above that Fayga M. sent me back in November.

When I looked in HaM'komos HaKedoshim, I discovered that the Shel"a HaKadosh wrote a letter to his son indicating that Yocheved had indeed entered Eretz Yisroel and was buried in Tiveria.

Interestingly, Tzippora, the wife of Moshe Rabbeinu, is also buried in this same location but HaM'komos HaKedoshim does not have any additional details about her or how she finally was brought to rest here.
