Beit Shearim

Beit She’arim, near Tivon southeast of Haifa, was once the headquarters of the Sanhedrin and became a world-renowned cemetery after Rabbi Judah Hanasi, compiler of the Mishnah, was interred here. Excavations have unearthed 20 catacombs with over 200 stone coffins bear fascinating inscriptions and designs, some newly reopened after conservation. Visitors can also see the remains of a synagogue and an olive press.
