Peki'in takes you back to an older, simpler time. A visit to the synagogue and the Zenati house, combined with a stroll through the alleyways of the old 'heart' of the village makes for a great half a day activity.

Jewish presence survived in Israel over the centuries in few places. One of them is Peki'in and the Zenati family. A visit to the village located in the high mountains of the Galilee is always great. There are several points of interest such as the...More
