  • Our driver will pick you up and you will start our Athens Jewish Tour. You will visit at the Synagogue in the Agora of Athens is an ancient synagogue located in the Ancient Agora of Athens. During an excavation in the summer of 1977, a piece of Pentelic marble apparently once part of a curvilinear frieze over a doorway or niche was discovered a few meters from the northeast corner of the Metroon. The marble fragment is incised with the images of a seven-branched Menorah and a Lulav, or palm branch.The synagogue is thought to date from the period between 267 and 396 CE.
  • Then, you will visit Beth Shalom Synagogue which is the principal synagogue of Athens, Greece. It was built in 1935 of white Pentelic marble, the architecture is an austere Greek revival style; the building was renovated in 1975. The synagogue is managed by Rabbi Gabriel Negrin, who was elected by the council of Athens’ Jewish community following the death of the longtime leader Jacob Arar in 2014.
  • Afterwards, you will continue to see the Etz Chaim Synagogue which is right across from Beth Shalom. It was built in 1904 by Greek Romaniote Jews who came from Ioannina, and for this reason it is also called the "Romanian" or "Yannonian" synagogue by the oldest members of the community. The synagogue suffered serious damage from the 1999 earthquake, mainly on the roof, which was radically renovated in 2006 and officially opened on 30 June 2007 by the Jewish Community of Athens. However, due to renovation, architectural interventions took place inside it and this created objections. The Etz Chaim Synagogue only works during the great religious celebrations of the Jewish Community. Only a few meters away from the synagogue, lies the New Holocaust Memorial of Greek Jews which is the point in which on March 24, 1944, the Germans entrapped and arrested the Greek Jews.
  • Finally, you will pay a visit to the Jewish Museum of Athens which was established by Nicholas Stavroulakis in 1977 to preserve the material culture of the Greek Jews. The Museum was founded to collect, preserve, and research and exhibit the material evidence of 2,300 years of Jewish life in Greece. As a historical and ethnographical museum its main interest is to provide a vivid picture of Jewish life and culture as it was during those centuries. The collection contains more than ten thousand artefacts (some of which are unique) pertaining to the domestic and religious life, as well as the history of the Greek Jews. The duration of the tour is about 4 hours
