View from the top of Beth Shemesh looking south over the roof tops of a few of the houses of modern Beth Shemesh (pop. 76,000). In the foreground is one of the remaining walls of a Byzantine Monastery that is on the top of Tell Beth Shemesh. In the distance, right of center, the building on the horizon is Beit Jimal, a school run by Salesian monks.
