The newest excavation began last summer at Huqoq, directed by Jodi Magness, of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. What’s behind all of this attention to Galilee synagogues. Well, Jodi Magness explains the attraction for her. Tune in for a listen, and if you’re interested in volunteering for the excavation, Jodi would be glad to hear from you.
