HIS : Meiron is located, along one of the eastern foothills of Mount Meiron. Josephus lists Meiron as one of the villages, fortified by him in 66 CE. (Life 188; war ) and olso named it as one of the border settlement of Upper Galilee. Meiron is olso one of the villages mentioned in the list of priestly courses (1Chr.24; Mishnah,Ta'an.4:2;Tosefta,Dem.4,13) as the seat of the family Jehoiarib. It is well known for its production of olive oil in the Talmudic period (J.T.,Shev'it 38d). By late medieval times, Meiron had become an important pilgrimage center, its sanctity deriving from the mystical traditions of Bar Yohai, the festival of Lag ba-'omer, and the centrality of Safed in the development of Lurianic mysticism. The excavation at ancient Meiron were conducted over the course of five seasons (1971-1972, 1974-1975, 1977) under the American Schools of Oriental Research by E.M. Meyers. The synagogue is dated to the late third century CE., According the coins that were found in the undisturbed foundaitions of an attached room in southeast corner. It apparently survived for less than a century.
