Khirbet Midras is a medium size site in the foothills of the Judean mountains.

It has several caves and tunnels made by Jewish Rebels 2000 years ago which are now a popular destination among youth groups; interesting burial structure; and a church discovered in 2011, yet covered again after vandalism.
