Huqoq (modern Arabic name: Yaquq) is a small  ancient village located 1.5 miles to the northwest of the Sea of  Galilee in Israel. An ancient synagogue building, the remains of which are still  visible in the midst of the ruins of Huqoq, will be the focus of the  Huqoq Excavation Project (HEP). Huqoq has never been excavated.
