Until the twentieth century, there were three thousand people within the Kırklareli Jewish congregation. However during the 1934 Thrace Pogroms, most Jews fled the city. The synagogue of the city is still active and now there are only 5 Jewish residents in the city of Thrace, including a rabbi. Most of the remaining population of these five Kırklareli are around the age of 80 or over. Rabbi Hayim Abravanel (85), his wife Victoria Abravanel (76) and Yasua Kaneti (80). The youngest members of the community are Penhas (58) and Rozi (50) Haleva. The Synagogue has been standing for 50 years.
