  • [01] Israeli journalists visit Veria synagogue

    (ANA-MPA) -- A group of journalists from Israel on Thursday visited a noted medieval Jewish synagogue in the north-central city of Veria, the only centuries-old synagogue in northern Greece that is preserved intact.

    Eleven Israeli journalists had the opportunity to learn about the history of the Jews in Veria, visit the synagogue, tour the old Jewish quarter and observe the traditional Sephardic architecture in the quarter.

    Veria Mayor Haroula Ousoultzoglou told ANA-MPA that the visit was the result of recent contacts with tour operators from Israel, underlining that the region has attracted strong tourism interest.

    The Jewish presence in Veria dates to 200 BC while the Sephardic quarter was built in the 19th century.
