Kehila Kedosha Janina is a Romaniote Jewish synagogue in the Lower East Side.

They offer free tours on of the synagogue itself on Sundays. It's a tiny place, and so the tour doesn't last long, but after it you can go to the second floor and enjoy their equally small museum of Greek Jewish artifacts. There are also books and t-shirts for sale. The man giving the tour at the time I went was very friendly and you could tell was genuinely passionate about getting to share Greek Jewish history with interested people.

Highly recommended if you're a fan of history and lesser known cultures.

I was moved by the existence of this beautiful Greek Synagogue. I learned so much and Eli, a congregant of 60 years spent a great deal of time sharing his experiences as a Jew of Greek descent.

Covers the history of a little known branch of Judaism, Romaniote Jews. Interesting photos and artifacts. On the main floor is the synagogue. The building is an historical landmark. Check museum hours. Only open on Sundays.
