In 1492, when Columbus’ ships were preparing to leave Spanish ports for the New World, another constellation of ships were waiting to take the Jews of Spain, expelled by the Spanish monarch, and sail them to lands they could be safe. A part of them took refuge in the cities of the Ottoman Empire. The Museum documents 700 (not 500, Jewish communities were already present in Anatolia) years of Turkish-Jewish relations and the vast heritage of Jewish communities in Turkey. It is a cultural museum rather than a religious one but it is housed in an old synagogue.Recommended for:
