Bar'am National Park

Bar'am National Park
גן לאומי ברעם
Ancient synagogue ruins in Bar'am

Bar'am National Park (Hebrew: גן לאומי ברעם‎) is an national park in Israel, between kibbutz Sasa and moshav Dovev, near the Lebanese border.[1] On the grounds of the park is a synagogue from the Talmudic period.

The original name of the village in which the synagogue was found is unknown, but it is indicative of the existence of an established Jewish community in the area it was found.

The synagogue is very similar to the Canaanite temple found in nearby ancient Canaanite village of Kedesh and signifies the architectural effects on the Jewish population of the period by the non-Jewish peoples who lived side by side with them in Galilee during that time.
