The Baram Synagogue

Located near the Lebanese border, the ancient synagogue in the Village of Baram dates back to the 4th and 5th centuries CE. The building’s façade, which is almost completely intact, is particularly impressive: it has three doorways facing Jerusalem, the middle of which is particularly grand. The village had another, smaller synagogue, of which almost nothing remains except a lintel, which is on display in the Louvre in Paris.

Conservation Plan:

– Conservation of the walls and floor of the ancient synagogue
– Arrangement of archaeological items scattered in the area
– Conservation and highlighting of ancient inscription on synagogue façade
– Renovation of historic structure near synagogue (the Arch House) as a hall of interpretation and explanations.

Cost Estimate: USD 250,000
