Stone Water Jars

These stone water jars belonged to the 4th century synagogue and were used for ritual purification before entering the synagogue. Their presence reminds us of Jesus’ first miracle in Cana of Galilee when it is says in John 2:6: "Nearby stood six stone water jars, the kind used by the Jews for ceremonial washing, each holding from twenty to thirty gallons."
