Breishis – and the Garden of Eden

There are many fascinating aspects of the first sedra of Breishis.   One is undoubtably the story of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden… and the question of where the Garden of Eden.   I remember an engrossing conversation with a friend who lives in Efrat,  who detailed the story of how the door to the Garden of Eden is in Hebron and entered from the Cave of Machpela.   Furthermore, this unique aspect of the site was one of the reasons why Abraham paid so much for it.
