The Talmudic Village of Katsrin

The Talmudic Village of Katsrin

Ancient Katzrin, located in the center of the Golan, was discovered shortly after the Six Day War. This settlement existed nearly 400 years, from Talmudic period (4 AD) until the early Islamic period (mid-AD 8).

At that time, Jewish settlement prospered in Katzrin. The main activity was the production of olive oil. The settlement was one of 27 villages in the center of the Golan, each Jewish community, have a large, richly decorated synagogue.

In the 746 year old Katzrin was destroyed by the earthquake and the inhabitants left. Follow-up 500 years of settlement was not inhabited. Only during Mamluks period (13-14 centuries). Katzrin once again began to settle. At the ruins of the synagogue was built a mosque, and the newly restored village lasted several hundred years.
