Beth-El Synagogue: Amphorae in the cellar
The synagogue had a special license to make wine for ritual purposes. Kosher wine was made in the premises of the Beth El synagogue. The residue of the wine was made into vinegar which was also sold to Jewish community members. The wine was stored in the cellar and then bottled and bought by Jewish families for "Kidush." These are some of the vats that were used to store the wine.
