Synagogue From the Time of Jesus Discovered

If I wasn't doing what I'm doing I would like to be an archaeologist in the Ancient Near East. Here's the link (Jerusalem Post) to the discovery of an ancient synagogue (prayer house) in Migdala near the Sea of Galilee. Migdala is the city where Mary Magdalene (Mary of Magdala) lived. The photo is of a drawing of a menorah engraved in stone that was in the 2000-year-old synagogue.
