About this Event

While the story of European Jews is often defined by tragedy, there is an exception: the continent’s eastern shore provided a safe haven for centuries. The Museum of Turkish Jews showcases their unique legacy in the Ottoman Empire and modern Turkey.

The museum displays the 2,600 years of historical and cultural heritage of Turkish Jews in this land, and their contributions to the social and political life in the country, with sections presenting the history, the ethnography, The Midrash (where religious objects are exhibited), the traditions, the life cycle and the Jewish settlements. A balcony overlooks the interior of Neve Shalom Synagogue, from which religious ceremonies can be observed.

The Quincentennial Foundation Museum of Turkish Jews, which has been in service since 2001 in Karaköy Perçemli Street, has welcomed visitors to its new complex, The Neve Shalom Synagogue from 2015, with its updated content and modern exhibition technologies.

Let us take a tour at the museum together on May 6
