The synagogue there is actually used today for an occasional bar mitzvah or wedding. It is evidence of a very long Jewish presence in the Golan. There are also interesting exhibits of life in those times.

If it's a summer visit, bring an umbrella for the sun because much of the history is outside. No guide when I visited, but recorded explanations in several languages, including English. Also, the brief film can be in several languages.

The ruins of the synagogue are beautiful. We enjoyed learning about the significance of its location. We also saw the remains of some family dwellings. Sadly, the only photo I captured was of a peacock.

Super fresh falaffel made on the spot, tasty shawarma. The synagogue is a beautiful area to explore. Archeology in progress as the original site is rebuilt. Something to follow in person or on line.

Interesting site with lots to keep the kids occupied. Feels like stepping back in time and you get a real feel of what life was like all those years ago.

The area is small but the map leads you around the synagogue, the rabbi's house, the olive press, the bread house and the wine press. Very informative and interesting.
