Dura Europos Synagogue

November 3rd, 2017 § 0 comments § permalink

Dura Europos – a town in modern day Syria, abandoned in the 3rd century, covered in sand and rediscovered in 1885. A synagogue was found there, covered in wall paintings, which is pretty rare in the world of synagogues. ISIS is in control of the area at the moment, and they apparently destroyed and looted a vast amount of the town. I doubt the synagogue would have remained untouched – however, it appears it may have in a way, as most of it was removed and taken to the National Museum of Damascus decades ago.
