Overview

Istanbul has had a vibrant Jewish community for more than 1000 years. After the Turkish conquest of Istanbul, Sultan Mehmet II encouraged immigration to repopulate the city. Over half a million Jews persecuted in Spain and Portugal were encouraged to establish themselves within the boundaries of the Ottoman Empire.

In Istanbul, the new immigrants settled mostly near Galata – a quarter on the northern bank of the Golden Horn – where a Jewish community had existed since the early days of the Ottoman Era in Istanbul.

We walk in Galata and find yourselves in intriguing streets full of colorful life. Synagogues, the Jewish Museum, Jewish Apartments, the amazing story of Abraham Kamondo and other Jewish heritage sites - are part of today´s tour.

Program for Monday – Friday: Jewish Museum, Ashkenazi Synagogue, Schneidertemple Synagogue and outer visits to Georgian Synagogue, Neve Shalom Synagogue, Italian Synagogue, Jewish Apartments, Kamondo Buildings.
