Ashdod. When cruise ships dock at Ashdod and passengers disembark for a look at Israel’s fifth-largest city. Their first stop is often Yona’s Hill (Givat Yona). For it is on Givat Yona, today the site of a delightful overlook, that the prophet Jonah was buried well over two thousand years ago. True, tradition places his burial site both in Jaffa and the Galilee.
