Izmir has been a home to the Jewish community since Roman times and the Synagogue Street (also known as Havra Sokak in local language) is the symbol of the same. The street once boasted nine synagogues in this busting street of Izmir’s Bazaar. Today, three of these historical synagogues are still used and prayers are conducted on Saturday mornings.
The Seniyora Synagogue takes its name from Dona Gracia Nasi (also known as La Senora): the mother-in-law and aunt of Duke Joseph Nasi. The most active synagogues on the street today dates back to 18th century and is open every morning. The Kadosh Mizrahi Synagogue is another one which is open only on Saturday morning. The Shalon (Aydin) Synagogue is also open only on Saturday mornings, but the visitors can catch its glimpse from outside while passing through the pathway leading to a shoe shop. The synagogue has glass doors and the interiors can be observed from outside.
• Best time to visit the synagogue is on Saturday morning when they are open for worship.
