Fodor's Review

The interior of this ancient house of worship, which resembles that of other Galilean synagogues of the Talmudic period (3rd to 8th centuries AD), is less well preserved than the exterior. Rows of pillars in the prayer hall apparently served as supports for the ceiling, and the building may have had a second story. A section of the facade's lintel, now in the Louvre in Paris, contains the Hebrew inscription "May there be peace in this place, and in all the places of Israel. This lintel was made by Jose the Levite. Blessings upon his works. Shalom." Allow at least an hour to wander around or bring a picnic and enjoy it on one of the tables.
