2000 years old "Shalom Al Ysrael" Mosaic - Jericho
At the beginning of the Al-Aqsa Intifada the site became a source of conflict. On the night of October 12, 2000, vandals entered and desecrated the building, damaging the private house on top of the ancient mosaic. Later, the PA repaired. The Torah scroll stored at the synagogue was rescued from the fire which had been started and was taken to Mevo'ot Yericho.
