There was a prosperous Jewish settlement at Ein Gedi that was destroyed at the time of the rebellion against the Romans. The main finding here is the ruins of a synagogue from the Byzantine period. The remains of a settlement from the Byzantine period were uncovered next to the synagogue, including a mikve (ritual purification bath), a pool, part of a street, and several houses.
