During the 19 years of Jordanian occupation of the Old City of
Jerusalem and of the area that included the old cemetery on the
Mt. of Olives, Jewish holy places and many synagogues were desce-
crated. It has been revealed since Israel regained the lost areas that

as decorative masonry in a Jordanian backyard. The synagogue,
which contained hundreds of Toras and treasures of Hasidic litera-

crated Jewish cemetery were used as paving blocks inside an army

ancient past of the country and the

cavations is to discover who were the
ancient inhabitants of the land of the
Negev, how they lived and from what
they earned their livelihood.
