About old Arbel:
The Arbel synagogue is located at the heart of the ancient Jewish settlement of Arbel. In the second temple period (538-70 BC) the Arbel settlement is mentioned in many sources and was probably one of the important settlements in the lower Galilee region.
 
Yosef Ben Matityahu mentions in his books that the trusties of the house of "Hashmonai"  in used to take shelter at the Arbel caves during their war against Hordus, and in the year 66 during the preparation for the big rebellion at the Romans, during his time as a the Galilee commander, he fortressed the Arbel caves.
 
The synagogue was made out of lime stone and was very eminent because most of the settlements houses were made out of common black volcanic stone. At the southern wall that heads towards Jerusalem a hole was made and the floor was heighted to put a closet were the Torah scrolls were held. The Arbel settlement and the synagogue were destroyed in the ancient Muslim period (638-1099 AC).
