Synagogue Visits In Istanbul.

Jewish community have lived in the geographic area of Asia Minor for more than 2,400 years. In the later Middle Ages, Ashkenazi Jews migrating to theáByzantine EmpireáandáOttoman Empireásupplemented the original Jewish population of Asia Minor. At the end of the 15th century, a large number ofáSephardic Jewsáfleeing persecution ináSpaináandáPortugalásettled in Asia Minor on the invitation of theáOttoman Empire. Despite emigration during the 20th century, modern dayáTurkeyácontinues a Jewish population.The present size of the Jewish Community is estimated at aroundá26,000áaccording to theáJewish Virtual Library. The vast majority live inIstanbul, with a community of about 2,500 ináŢzmiráand other smaller groups located in the rest of Turkey.áSephardic Jewsámake up approximately 96% of Turkey's Jewish population, while the rest are primarily Ashkenazic.Turkish Jews are still legally represented by theáHahambasi, the Chief Rabbi. Rav Izak Haleva, is assisted by a religious Council made up of a Rosh Bet Din and three Hahamim. Thirty-five Lay Counselors look after the secular affairs of the Community and an Executive Committee of fourteen, the president of which must be elected from among the Lay Counselors, runs the daily affairs.
