The Romaniote

Past Romaniote Newsletters

Spring 2019

As with many other Jewish congregations throughout the world, we, too, have been plagued by changes in demographics, leading to lower service attendance at our synagogue. We have persevered over the years and are now looking to the future. We have joined forces with, and derived inspiration from, Rabbi Gabriel Negrin, the Chief Rabbi of Athens Greece, himself a Romaniote. 

Spring 2018

You cannot know who you are until you know where you came from, and you certainly cannot know where you are going until you access what brought you to the present. This is not only the individual story of successful people, but also the basis of achievement for successful institutions. Kehila Kedosha Janina has been very fortunate in having a wealth of inspiring history to fall back on, and, as has been shown by our renaissance in recent years, a path for a productive future.

Winter 2016

Many articles have been written about Kehila Kedosha Janina, initially forecasting the demise of the community and our beloved synagogue. As our community persevered and continued to, not only maintaining a functioning Jewish house of worship but, also, becoming a major tourist attraction, highlighted by visits to our Museum, many wondered why. Why was this community that so many thought would pass into oblivion, still viable in the modern world? One word may hold the key: dedication.

Past E-Newsletters

January 2020

We wish our friends a Happy and Healthy Secular New Year surrounded by family and friends. May 2020 bring peace throughout the world. May we continue to grow and flourish. May our wealth be counted, not in material possessions but, rather, in the love of family, friends and community.

December 2019

As we close out the secular year of 2019, we wish our Jewish readers a Happy Hanukkah, and our Christian readers a Merry Christmas.

November 2019

​In the United States, November 11th is commemorated as Veterans’ Day. Originating as Armistice Day it originally remembered the armistice signed in the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, ending World War I, the war that was called “The Great War,” and “The War to end all Wars.” Many wars have been fought since, and thousands of lives of both young soldiers and innocent civilians have been lost. It is our wish that we, as human beings, can put an end to this and one day, hopefully, learn to live with each other. This issue is dedicated to Greek Jews, Israeli Jews, and Greek American Jews who fought and died for their countries.

October 2019

We wish our friends a Happy and Healthy New Year surrounded by family and friends. May 5780 bring peace throughout the world. May we continue to grow and flourish.
