About The Landmark
Take a look inside this synagogue built for a small group of Romaniote Jews who trace their roots to the town of Ionnina in northwestern Greece. The museum portion includes costumes from Janina, a large collection of alephs (distinctive hand-painted birth certificates), a literary center, and art gallery.
The Kehila Kedosha Janina Synagogue & Museum is located at 280 Broome Street within the Lower East Side of Manhattan. This small synagogue was built in 1927 and was designated a New York City Landmark in 2005.
