Ein Naboriya Spring
Ein Naboriya Spring:
Built only 65 years after the destruction of the Jerusalem Temple in 70 C.E., the synagogue at Naboriya is one of the oldest houses of worship in the Galilee and worth a special visit. You will find the partially restored synagogue inside the Jewish National Fund’s Biriya Forest (near Safed). Discovered at the site were columns and capitals, the elaborate lintel and some of the walls; look for a rare inscription announcing the date of the synagogue’s third expansion.
Stop in at lovely Ein Naboriya, as well.
The spring, which supplied the Jews of Naboriya with water, flows from inside a cave. The JNF cleaned out the spring a few years ago and planted trees that were common during those far-off days: fig and pomegranate, Mediterranean rosebud, mulberry and spiny hawthorn.
