Hi there! Until February 2021 all the costs were being funded by the volunteers, and we do not run ads. But recently due to the rise in costs it is becoming difficult to cover the costs. If everyone reading this would donate just $5, our fundraiser would be over in less than an hour.
No donation is small, you can make your contributions here. :)
Magdala (المجدل), meaning tower, was an ancient city on the shore of the Sea of Galilee, 3 miles (4.8 km) north of Tiberias. In the Babylonian Talmud it is known as Magdala Nunayya (Aramaic: מגדלא נוניה, meaning "Tower of the Fishes"), and which some historical geographers think may refer to Tarichaea, literally the place of processing fish. It is believed to be the birthplace of Mary Magdalene.
The Magdala Stone is rectangular and features on the short side a seven-pronged menorah flanked with large jars and columns, on the long sides architectural carvings to give the feeling of being “inside” a Synagogue, and on the top a rosette design with six petals. his is the first menorah to be discovered in a Jewish context and that dates to the Second Temple period/beginning of the Early Roman period.
