Peki'in is a town in the Upper Galilee that today is predominantly Druze but is a popular tourist spot due to the restored ancient Synagogue that houses an ancient Torah scroll and stone carvings. Legend has it that Jews escaping from the devastation caused by the Romans when the Second Temple was destroyed transported the stone pieces to Peki'in for safekeeping. Additionally, the cave where Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai and his son hid from the Romans for thirteen years is also found in Peki'in. It was during this time that Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai wrote the Jewish mystical book, the Zohar. The caretaker of the Synagogue, Margalit Zenati, the only remaining Jew in Peki'in's family- line in Peki'in reaches back an astounding 2,000 years. She presents a show in her one-room family show on her life in the village. Call 050-771-3357 for information on show times, tickets and other information
