Shacharis in Jericho: The Shalom Al Yisrael Synagogue

The medallion from the mosaic floor of the Shalom Al Yisrael Synagogue. Features a large menorah, with a shofar on the right, a lulav on the left, and the inscription שלום על ישראל - peace on IsraelThis morning I got up early in the morning and left Jerusalem for Jericho. There, I davenned shacharis (morning services) in a synagogue over 1000 years old.

The Shalom Al Yisrael synagogue was built during the Talmudic era by Jewish residents of Jericho. The most famous (and only surviving) feature of the synagogue is it’s spectacular mosaic floor, featuring a schematic Aron Kodesh (Holy Ark) as well as a central medallion containing a Menorah, Shofar and Lulav and the words “שלום על ישראל” – Shalom Al Yisrael or Peace upon Israel in English.
