It is NOT in the "Palestinian Territories." It is in Sussiya, Har Chevron, Israel. If you want to get technical it is in Area C which legally speaking is "Contested." The "Palestinian Territories" consist only of Area A, Area B, and Sector H1 in Hebron....More

We found and excellent guide, Immanuel with "One Israel Tours". He took us to Hebron and Susya. Susya is a hidden Gem and well worth going to. It was my son's favorite place on our Israel trip. I love the caves (Especially the escape cave)....More

We wanted to visit the place but something went wrong with the israeli soldiers. Maybe they didn't like my kefia, I just wonder because with no reason they just told me I can't enter. This is a shame, the idf have the right to rule...More

The main attraction to the Susya Archaeological Site is the beautifully preserved synagogue with its imposing strategic location on a hill top, mosaic floors and stately columns. It reminded me of the Parthenon. Starting at the 2-year-old beautiful Visitors Center, there is a warm welcome,...More

I had not heard of this site so was very excited to learn of it and go with someone who lives in Israel. Susya is a very large site, but the area is very walkable with few places that are not as accessible to someone...More

Went here on a big family trip which included young children and teenagers. The history of the city is extremely interesting and the kids had a great time exploring. We had a very knowledgeable guide that gave us a tour in English.

We went to this ancient synagogue as a side-route from the Yattir forest, and we did not regret it. It is located in the Westbank, so you have to cross a control post, but driving there is absolutely safe. A very helpful guide explained us...More

Visting Susya and getting all the information may require a good knowledgable guide- and we had one. To see an ancient city, which was not destroyed bt nature or war, and was well organized- is of interest. The synagigue is quite special too.

This is a small side stop on a Hebron tour. It is nice to see, but it is not incredible. There is a small ruined house of worship, which was either Jewish or Christian. The main point is the nice view of Hebron city. I'm...More
