Sometimes when you support the building of a church or other important building, they’ll put your name on a brick used in the construction.  Apparently that’s not a new idea.  A restoration project at an ancient synagogue and visitor’s center in the Western Galilee uncovered 1,800-year-old Hebrew inscriptions on a column capital. The inscriptions, which appear to be the names of donors who contributed to the synagogue, confirm the Jewish history of the 2,000-year-old village.  Read more about it at http://fw.to/Q6vv2zf
