Discovered building synagogue from Roman times

Archaeologists conducting excavations in 2014 in the central part of the Golan Heights in Israel discovered a large public building from the Roman era. They believe that it could have been a synagogue made of hewn stones. There were two parallel rows of benches inside. Remains of columns and fragments of pottery were found.

According to the scientists, there is no other option for this type of structure than a Jewish synagogue.
