Two years after their departure, the Zeinati family returned from its “Nahariya Exile” to Peqi’in.

The family of Mohammad Ahmad Mahmoud, the father of Ra’aya, Margalit’s best friend to this day had preserved all of the Zeinati family’s property, as well as the keys to the house and the synagogue.

The synagogue, which was in dilapidated condition, was renovated at the initiative of Yitzhak Ben Tzvi, Israel’s second president.
