Bet Shearim National Park
A Time Capsule of Jewish Heritage
Meet Bet She’arim National Park
Nestled in the heart of the Jezreel Valley, Bet She’arim National Park stands as a monumental testament to Jewish history and heritage. As the final resting place of many prominent Jewish figures, including Rabbi Yehuda HaNasi, the park offers a unique window into ancient Jewish burial customs, art, and inscriptions.
Bet She’arim is more than just an archaeological site; it’s a journey through time, echoing with the voices of ancient Jewish communities. The park’s catacombs, adorned with intricate carvings and inscriptions, offer a profound connection to a bygone era.
