Perhaps the greatest expert on the Sea of Galillee (yam kinneret) in the biblical and Second Temple period, as well as
an accomplished fisherman himself, Mendel Nun passed away yesterday at the age of 92. For years, he resided at Kibbutz Ein-Gev, on the eastern shore of the Galilee, where his fishing museum still stands.
Some of his works can be read here, and listed below are some of his books.
