„Lake Tiberias (Sea of Galilee), Northern Israel“ /via NASA


Israels größter Süßwassersee, der See Genezareth, ist auch bekannt als See von Tiberias, Kinneretsee und das Galiläische MeerDer See misst gerade mehr als 21 Kilometer (13 Meilen) Nord-Süd, und ist nur 43 Meter (141 Fuß) tief. Der See wird teilweise gespeist durch unterirdische Quellen, die verbunden sind mit dem  Jordangraben des Großen Afrikanischen Grabenbruchs, aber das Meiste seines Wassers kommt aus dem Jordan, der aus dem Norden kommt. Der gewundene Lauf des Flußes ist zu sehen, das südliche Ende des Sees (Bild unten) trockenlegend. Eckige grüne und braune Feldmuster hüllen die meisten Hänge in dieser trockenen Landschaft ein. Helle Dächer sind charakteristisch für mehrere Dörfer in der Umgebung. Die größte Gruppierung von hellen Dächern und Häuserblocks zeigt den Ort  Tiberias (nach dem römischen Kaiser Tiberius benannt), sichtbar im Bild links am Südwestufer des Sees. Krieg, Erdbeben und sogar ein Hochwasser im Jahr 1934 resultierten in schweren Beschädigungen der Stadt in den letzten 2.000 Jahren, aber sie ist jetzt Israels beliebtestes Urlaubsziel. Ruinen der berühmten  biblischen Stadt Kapernaum, 1838 durch den US-Forscher Edward Robinson wieder entdeckt, liegt etwas nördlich von Tiberias am nordwestlichen Ufer des Tiberiassees. Ausgrabungen haben eine Synagoge aus dem 4. Jahrhundert oder 5. Jahrhundert offenbart, so daß sie eine der ältesten der Welt ist.
