Gush Halav Synagogue

Going back for the wonderful figs of the Gush Halav canyon, I decided to check out the old synagogue nearby. I was struck by the quality of the Roman inspired architecture.

A particular surprise was the carved eagle, which is usually more commonly recognised as a Roman icon.

I was much taken back, even appalled, by the neglect of the site with the grazing cows leaving their dung splattered all inside and around this small but impressive site.
