Dalton – Tomb of the Galilee Sage
While most of the Talmudic Sages are identified with the name of their father or simply with their own name, the exception is Rabbi Yosef Ha-Galili.
This colleague of Talmudic giants such as Rabbi Akiva earned his surname through spending his early years in Galilee.
Tradition has it that his tomb is located in Moshav Dalton, some three miles north of Tsefat.
