Monastir Synagogue (Thessaloniki)
קהל קדוש מונאסטירליס
Exterior of synagogue from street
|Location||35, Sygrou Street
|Ecclesiastical or organizational status||Active|
During World War II, the synagogue was saved by being requisitioned by the Red Cross. In June 1978, the structure of the building was severely damaged by an earthquake. It was restored by the Greek government and today is used primarily during the high holidays.
The synagogue is no longer in regular function. There is a new one shared with the Rabbinate and the offices of the Jewish Community of Thessaloniki at Tsimiki Street downtown. The Jewish museum is also near this new location.
