The Sages recommend visiting the graves of the righteous — not so much a matter of vacation, but, you know, to hang out with your elders. And, following in the wake of online mail, online auctions, and cybersex, you can now perform this time-honored ritual online.

Rabbi Shlomo Ephraim Luntschitz

This is the grave of the Kli Yakar, who wrote one of the most amazing commentaries on the Torah. Legend says that, just as the Maharal was going to die, he told the Prague Jewish Community to go look for this man and make him their new rabbi. Nobody had ever heard of him, and no one was quite sure how the Maharal found him, but they did as requested. A few hundred years later, he's still in Prague. But now he's online, too — just like Cthulhu and the Bush Twins.
