    When the Talmud was written, Jobar was documented as a Jewish settlement in the outskirts of Damascus (today the Old City district of Damascus). Jobar has one of the oldest synagogues in the world which was built more than 2,000 years ago.

    When Muslim soldiers of the Free Syrian Army captured Jobar in 2012, they demolished the synagogue and built a tunnel under it.

    Fortunately, Russia backed SAA recaptured Jobar a few days ago and will rebuild the ancient synagogue because SAA is secular and protects all religions and atheists, no matter polytheists like Hindus or monothesists like Jews.
