On the Israeli 100 NIS banknote there's a picture of the synagogue in Peki'in, and a view of this western Galilee village. Peki'in is a symbol of the conservation of the Jewish ember since there are a few Jews whose families never went to exile. Parts of this synagogue are two thousand years old and there's a Star of David on its walls.

 I also found a Hebrew description of a travelers track to Peki'in where the author says that this synagogue was built in 1873, and its walls are checkered with remnants of stone relief such as: Shofar, Lulav, Etrog, pan and Magen David
