To the Mother of Arches
The Byzantine-era synagogue of Umm el-Kanatir ('Mother of Arches' in Arabic) has finally been reconstructed. I've been waiting years for this incredible project to be completed - the first time an ancient synagogue has been restored using the original stones. It's an amazing story, and a beautiful site: a must-see for any visit to the Golan. In the picture above you can see the restored Ark.
