Etz Hayyim Synagogue

Etz Hayyim Synagogue

On the south pavement of Egnatia Street, exactly opposite the statue of Eleftherios Venizelos, Etz Hayyim Synagogue operated until 1920, when it was demolished so that the new urban plan could be implemented. Its previous location had been on the sea wall, which was demolished in 1870. According to tradition, it was the oldest synagogue of Greek-speaking Jews.
