The Beth Alpha synagogue was found by chance by Jewish Kibbuz members of Hefziba in 1928. Excavations held at the site exposed a basilical shaped structure whose nave is decorated with an elaborat mosaic floor.
The subjects chosen include two Menorahs and other Jewish symbols, but also figurative art (The sacrifice of Issac), and a big surprising depiction of the Zodiac. The meaning remains to this day an enigma.
