Etz Hayim Syngague in Izmir

Following the grant allowed by the Izmir Agency for Development and due to an international professional endeavor financed by the Izmir Jewish Community Foundation and Tel Aviv based Kiriaty Foundation, progress is made in the restoration of the Etz Hayim Synagogue in Izmir. Being one of the oldest synagogues in Izmir, extra care is shown to accomplish a restoration that will reflect the historical and cultural stages the site has undergone. Etz Hayim Synagogue is one of the 9 synagogues that form the Izmir Jewish Heritage Museum. The restoration process is estimated to end by December 2020.
