There was a similar story about my second great-uncle, Gershon Lifshitz, who supposedly walked most of the way from Pinsk to Jerusalem that was recounted in an Israeli newspaper in 1991.
An English language translation is on my family history website at:
Gershon Joseph Lifshitz, a rabbinical scholar and blacksmith from Pinsk, walked most of the way from Russia to Jerusalem in the 1880s to escape from service in the czarist army
