Galilee Jewish Heritage - Peki’in Synagogue
Information: Open throughout the year.
About the route: The synagogue in Peki’in is impressive living testimony

the Second Temple. The site was destroyed by a number of earthquakes down
through history, and renovated a number of times. The current synagogue is
maintained and cared for these past decades by Ms. Margalit
Zinati, a descendant of one of the Jewish community families that have
lived in Peki’in for thousands of years.
How to get there: In Old Peki’in - continue from the entrance to the
settlement, straight to the synagogue.
