Did Jesus preach at this synagogue? Archaeologists excavate 2,000-year-old ruins in ancient town of Magdala where Christ is thought to have taught disciples
Synagogue is thought to have been focal point when Jesus visited Magdala
Ruins discovered during preparation to build a hotel beside Sea of Galilee
Ancient town of Magdala lies under what is now Migdal in northern Israel
Jewish artefacts date back to the time of Jesus and the rise of Christianity

Notice the Menorah in the center this is what most Jewish homes today light their candles in for Hanukkah

During a meeting of the United Nations General Assembly a member of the Israel delegation got up to speak. He started by saying " Before I get down to business I'd like to share a story with you. One day Moses decided to go for a swim in a near by lake. Whilst swimming a Palestinian sneaked up and stole his robes." With that the Arab delegation member rose to his feet and yelled " There was no Palestinians then!!!"
"Exactly" Replied the Israel minister, " and now we have established that perhaps we can get on with the business in hand!"

Along with many world leaders David Cameron celebrate hanukkah
