This synagogue acted as a synagogue in the time of Jesus, or in other words, before the destruction of the Second Temple. This fact suggests that the notion of “synagogue” existed as a notion of the house of public meetings and did not carry the original religious meaning or the meaning of prayer. Only after the destruction of the Jerusalem Temple and the lack of opportunity to serve in the Temple, the synagogues gained religious significance. Translated with Google Translate
