Imaginative view of Tiberias, the Jewish neighborhood in 1549.

Tiberias is a city on the western shore of the Sea of Galilee, Lower Galilee, Israel. Established in 20 CE, it was named in honour of the emperor Tiberius.
Tiberias has been venerated in Judaism since the middle of the 2nd-century and since the 16th century, has been considered one of Judaism’s Four Holy Cities, along with Jerusalem, Hebron and Safed. In the 2nd-10th centuries, Tiberias was the largest Jewish city in the Galilee, and the political and religious hub of the Jews of Palestine. According to Christian tradition, Jesus performed several miracles in the Tiberias district, making it an important pilgrimage site for devout Christians. Tiberias has historically been known for its hot springs, believed to cure skin and other ailments, for thousands of years.
A Christian traveler describes a small Jewish community in Tiberias in 1549 – perhaps Jews from Saffed who settled in Tiberias.

    Really nice – specially that the Kineret is full here and without islands ;-)) Wonderfully rendert, Moshe! As I believe to remember, before Tiberias, Tsipori was the center of attention up in that area! Yom tov ve shavua tov!
