Ein-Gedi Synagogue

The ancient synagogue of Ein-Gedi was discovered by chance in the 1970’s when members of kibbutz Ein-Gedi were placing a water pipe in its vicinity.

The Excavations uncovered a well preserved mosaic floor of a 5th-6th centuries synagogue, with mostly geometric designs, but also several important inscriptions. 

The synagogue and its inscriptions incidate a thriving Jewish community in Ein-Gedi in Talmudic times, making a good living from the production of the Balsam.
