Jewish History: The Great Rabbis: Rabbi Meir Ba'al ha-Nes:
Who was Rabbi Meir Ba'al ha-Nes?
Scholars differ as to the identity of Rabbi Meir Ba'al ha-Nes, whose
tomb is on the shore of Lake Kinneret, near Tiberias. Some say he was
the Tanna Rabbi Meir, about whom a miracle is related in the Talmud,
but others identify him with later rabbis. Prayers to "the G-d of Meir"
are believed to be effective for guarding against illnesses and dangers,
and for having children and finding lost objects; no doubt they would
also be helpful for finding a spouse.
