The Ancient Village of Itri

Israel has breathtaking spots for personal prayer; that's natural, for it's the Land of Emuna.

Chirbit Itri (the ruins of Itri) is an ancient Judean village that was destroyed during the Bar Kochba Revolt against the Romans nearly 1900 years ago (132 -136 CE). It was a village of extremely pious Jews that has a large synagogue, four mikvas, and one of the most well-preseved winepresses from the period of the Second Temple. The village is off the beaten tourist path, quite near Elah Valley where David fought Goliath in the western Judean foothills.

Harvard Law Professor Alan M. Dershowitz said:

“It is true that the American legal system derives much of its content from the Old Testament [Jewish Bible or Tanach]…

When we were growing up, my friends and I would take great pride in discovering the Jewish sources of American laws, such as: the privilege against self-incrimination, the requirement of two witnesses for certain types of crime, and the very idea that punishment must be proportionate to the crime committed.”
