Virtual Tour This Month @Gamla

This month’s nineteenth virtual tour takes us to Gamla an ancient Jewish city on the Golan Heights and a rebel stronghold during the Great Revolt. As such, Gamla became a symbol for the modern State of Israel and an important historical and archaeological site.

Our Master Guide, Reuven Solomon will take us on a journey through time on the virtual 20-minute hike to Gamla’s ruins which are truly worth the effort to view what remains. We will visit the excavation sites which have revealed fascinating finds, including one of the world’s oldest synagogues.

Reuven will share the stories of:
• The Jewish revolt against the Romans and the battle that ensued
• The six unique coins minted by town fathers almost 2,000 years ago
• Gamla’s notoriety as the Masada of the North
