HIS : The synagogue is situated on the east bank of the Jordan River. approximately 3km north of the see of Galilee. The remains of the synagogue were discoverd by L.Oliphant (1884). G.Schumacher survayed the site (1889). Remains of the synagogue were partly cleared by H.Kohl and C.Vatzinger (1905). An Expedition from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem led by E.L.Sukenik visited the site (1932). The synagogue survayed by C.Epstain (1967). Some architectural remains were recorded by Z.Maoz (1979) The date of the synagogue is on a debate. G.Foerster dated it to the third century on stylistic considarations. Z.Maoz dated the synagogue to the mid fifth century according the stylistic association with Corazin-En Nashut "school"., and a Corinthian capital with eagles carved on its corners. According the style the synagogue dated to the forth century by R.Ben Arie.
