Go on a tour of this historic synagogue of the only remaining congregation of Romaniote Jews in the Western Hemisphere. In the pre-Sephardic tradition, Congregation Kehila Kedosha Janina is the last representation of the community that emigrated from the Ottoman Empire. Using Sephardic prayer books but following the unique Romaniote tradition and liturgy, worshippers are welcome to join the congregation during services every Sabbath and holiday. The congregation also maintains an active calendar of events, lectures, and concerts. The tour guide will be Marvin Marcus, who has served as the President of the congregation since 2006.
