We continue our discussion on this amazing first century city that is being uncovered along the northwestern shore of the Sea of Galilee by focusing on the first building that archaeologists excavated, a first century synagogue.

Our guest is Steven Fine, professor of Jewish History at Yeshiva University. Professor Fine compares this synagogue to other first century synagogues that have been discovered, and discusses the mysterious carved stone that was found in the very center of this synagogue.
