9:15 am - 4:00 pm
Join us at the Kehila Kedosha Janina Synagogue and Museum on the Lower East side, a New York City landmark and the last remaining synagogue in the Western Hemisphere that practices Romaniote Judaism, a rare branch of Judaism that originated centuries ago in Greece. This museum opened in 1927 and serves as a repository for unique Greek Jewish history and culture. The museum director will join us to share the history of the synagogue. A delicious Greek lunch will be served, followed by an opportunity to view the artifacts in the museum along with a video describing the experience of Greek Jews during the Holocaust.
Please note: The 1927 building is not handicapped accessible; there are steps to climb within the building in order to see the exhibits which are on several different levels.
