Katzrin Ancient Village and Synagogue

katsrin ancient synagogueLocated in the heart of the Golan Heights, ancient Katzrin was inhabited since the Middle Bronze age, but its archaeological park focuses on a Jewish village that thrived between the 4th to 6th centuries CE.  The site was rediscovered in 1967, following the six days war, and was excavated between 1971 to 1984. With remarkable conservation and reconstruction work, ancient Katzrin village is a good demonstration of an ancient Jewish village in Talmudic times.

Book a Private Tour to Katsrin

Katsrin is in the Golan Heights, which is about 3 hours drive from Jerusalem or Tel-Aviv, and so it is recommended to devote atleast two days for touring this region. Contact me for more details and a tour proposal.

Bar-Mitzvah in the Ancient Synagogue of Katsrin

The ancient synagogue of Katsrin can be a great and special location for a Bar/Bat-Mizvah ceremony. Reading from the Torah inside a genuine 1,500 year old synagogue is a truly special spiritual moment, connecting so strongly to Judaism in antiquity in the Holy Land.

It is recommended to combine it with a visit to a Shofar workshop nearby (“Kol Shofar“) where the child can make his own Shofar from a Ram’s horn.
