(Hebrew: migdal, tower, fortress)

A town in Galilee, 2.5 miles north of Tiberias, birthplace or home of Mary Magdalen (Luke 8); probably the Magdalel of the tribe of Nephtali (Joshua 19). After the second multiplication of loaves Jesus went with His Apostles "into the coasts of Magedan" (Matthew 15), the name given to Magdala by some writers. A wealthy town, it was destroyed by the Romans on account of its immorality. It is the modern Mejdel.
