The village of Kfar Cana or Cana of Galilee, as they usually call a town in the Christian tradition, has a rich history. The most ancient settlement on the site of the village dates back to the times of the Egyptian pharaohs. Josephus fortified the town during the Jewish uprising against the Romans. After the second Jerusalem temple was destroyed, Jewish sages lived in the village, and there was a prosperous community. In the Middle Ages, Cana of Galilee developed the craft of dyeing carpets. The town is associated with the Christian tradition of the miracle of turning water into wine. In the nineteenth century, two churches were built in the village: one Orthodox and another Catholic.
