Katzrin

Katzrin is a Jewish town that has been excavated and partially restored. It dates back to the 4th century and was inhabited until the 7th century.

The site contains an ancient oil press as well as a completely restored house with agricultural tools, millstones, kitchen utensils, and oil lamps, as well as axes, saws, hammers, and planes.

The black lines on the walls differentiate between the original structure and the restoration.

Katzrin has a reconstructed 4th- 5th-century synagogue with large pillars, stone benches, and the remains of a mosaic floor.

It once stood two stories high with the second story supported by twelve to eighteen pillars. The second story was probably a women’s gallery.
