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.

Testimonials
Our two-week trip to Israel was one of the best experiences of our lives. Shmuel knows the country like the back of his hand and takes you not only to everything you want to see but to fascinating places you haven't even heard os! We saw a more complete Israel than any of our friends on regular organized tourist trips. Shmuel taught us a great deal about the geography and history of the places we visited. He also has a great sense of humor, is a lot of fun to be with and picks great places to eat. We could not recommend more highly and more enthusiastically seeing Israel with Shmuel as your guide.
