Turkish Jews: Jewish Legacy in Anatolia and Today’s Turkey

Hosted By: Qesher

The history of the Jews in Anatolia started 2400 years ago with the arrival of Romaniote, Mizrahi and Karaite Jews, followed later by Ashkenazi and Sephardic Jews. Examine ancient synagogues, Jewish settlements and cemeteries belonging to different eras and traditions, as well as important events of WWI and WWII. Sephardic cuisine, music, Judeo Spanish language, ethnographic and liturgical objects from the museum collection will be explained. Finally, explore today’s vibrant Jewish life in Turkey.

Host

Qesher

There are Jewish communities all around the globe with their own unique history, culture, places, and most of all, people and stories. All of them different, but sharing so much. The aim of Qesher is to connect these different Jewish traditions, not just to know of each other, but to learn about each other. We believe that there is great value in creating a deeper understanding within the Jewish world and exploring Jewish experiences and identities in all their diversity.
