Download PDF for this date

Work was begun today on the first stage of a new hydroelectric project being built at the site of the ancient Hebraic town of Tabgha, on Lake Tiberias, near the modern settlement of Ginnosar. A test tunnel was dug at the site some time ago to determine the geologic structure of the area preparatory to the project’s construction work.
