Neve Shalom Synagogue

Bereketzade Mh., Büyük Hendek Caddesi No. 61, Karaköy

The 20th-century Neve Shalom Synagogue was built in the late 1930s to meet the demands of the increasing Jewish population in the area. It evolved to a Jewish primary school and back to a synagogue within the space of 10 years. It was inaugurated as just a synagogue in 1951. Designed by young Turkish Jewish architects, Elyo Ventura and Bernar Motola, it is the largest and most central Sephardic synagogue in the city.

Unfortunately, the Neve Shalom has been the target of a number of terrorist attacks, including ones in 1986 and 2003, both of which were very serious.
