An official Path Through History Site! Formed in 1906, this is the only remaining congregation of Romaniote Jews in the Western Hemisphere. The congregation is an obscure branch of Judaism with traditions dating back to Roman times. Their story is told in the museum at the congregation`s synagogue, which was built in 1927. View costumes from Janina, the Romaniote capital of Greece, see the community`s distinctive hand-painted birth certificates, and hear about their travels through history. The museum includes a literacy center and art gallery.
