The Huqoq Excavation Project

Traveling always involves some moments of serendipity, and our recent cruise along the coastline of Croatia with Travel Dynamics was no exception.

Travel Dynamics is a tour company that combines entertainment and education in a small group setting.  On our May 2014 cruise we were entertained by the Metropolitan Opera Soprano Deborah Voigt and educated by archaeologist Dr. Jodi Magness.

Dr. Magness is energetic, enthusiastic, enterprising and animated.  You cannot help but like her immediately.  For three years in row she made some startling and spectacular discoveries at a site of an ancient synagogue in Huqoq, an ancient Jewish village in Israel’s Lower Galilee.  You can track her progress in unearthing some vibrant mosaics on her website:; you can view her as an archaeologist in the IMAX Jerusalem; or you can take her courses vicariously in The Great Courses Series: The Holy Land Revealed (
