The Pekiin Synagogue is a synagogue located in the center of Peki'in, Northern Israel, said to have built into its walls two stones taken from the walls of the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem.

According to local tradition the synagogue was built on the site of the Beth midrash, where Rabbi Joshua ben Hanania taught before the Bar Kochba war, and Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai after it.

The current structure dates from 1873 after the former one was destroyed by an earthquake 30 years before.

Funding for the construction, attested to on a plaque commemorating the donation, was given by a Jew named Rafael Halevy from Beirut.
