An archaeological excavation is now underway in Korazim National Park, including preservation efforts within the synagogue complex. The Korazim synagogue was active in the 4th and 5th centuries CE and was widely known for its impressive architecture and artistry. The preservation and restoration efforts now underway are designed to make the site more accessible, improve the visitor experience, and – above all – pay respect to history. This work includes restoring the basalt floor, adding benches similar to those that would have originally been present, and roofing the synagogue. The synagogue is still open, but is not accessible to people with disabilities. It can be visited under the general restrictions in force at the site. The preservation and restoration work is expected to be completed at the end of next year.
Herodium National Park
Work continues on development and accessibility
As our development work continues at Herodium National Park, a shaded viewing platform has been built for the tomb structure, including original items on loan from the Israel Museum. A shaded area has also been established next to the exhibition about the royal chamber within the theater complex, and an accessible paved path now leads to the royal chamber.
Herodium National Park is home to one of the most impressive ancient palaces in the Judean Desert. It was not only Herod the Great’s personal palace, with extravagant living quarters, but also his burial place.
