Bet Yaakov Synagogue
Bet Yaakov Synagogue (Hebrew: קהל קדוש בית יעקב) is a synagogue in Istanbul, Turkey. Located at the Asian side of the Bosphorus in the area called Kuzguncuk, just beside a Greek Orthodox church, it was built in 1878. The Jewish population of Kuzguncuk having moved away, it is kept alive by worshippers whose families originated there. Shabbat services on Saturday morning are held regularly.
