Korazim is a town that is first mentioned in sources from the Second Temple Period due to the fine wheat they inhabitants of the town produced. The town flourished at the end of the Talmudic period.
A magnificent synagogue was built in Korazim at the end of the fourth century or at the beginning of the fifth century. The synagogue was made of basalt and was carved in geometric, floral and faunal patterns. Many visitors use the synagogue today for Bar Mitzva ceremonies and weddings.
Additionally, a carved basalt seat was found that was intended for the most respected members of the community. Also an ancient ritual bath, two large dwellings and an olive pres s were reconstructed near the synagogue.
Conies can be spotted on the rocks as well as climbing the Christ-thorn jujube trees.
There is also a Bedouin Sheikh’s tomb at Korazim.

Hello reader. My name is Charlotte Noris and I am sure that you will definitely enjoy my blog. Do you know why? All because on the pages you will see bright and colorful photos, as well as useful information. My husband and I are freelancers, so we can travel at any time of the year.
For myself, I most often plan tours in advance, but it also happens that the trip turns out to be spontaneous when I see an interesting place and a nice price. At the age of 35, I have visited more than 30 countries and do not plan to stop there. I want to visit all continents and the most secret corners of our planet.
