Photo Friday: Masada of the North

Ruins of ancient synagogue at Gamla (Photo: Yael Ilan/GPO)

In the Golan Heights stands Gamla, which means "camel" in Aramaic, so named for the hump-shaped hill on which it was built. Gamla, also known as the "Masada of the north," was the site of a Jewish revolt against the Romans during the first century, and today still stands as a symbol of Israeli bravery. Here we see ancient ruins of a synagogue on this hill known for its Hebrew heroism. Shabbat shalom, friends.
