Neve Şalom Synagogue is located in the Karaköy region of the Beyoğlu district of Istanbul and is the largest synagogue of the Sephardic Jewish community in Turkey. This impressive synagogue, opened on March 25, 1951, attracts attention with its original architecture and historical importance.


Neve Shalom means "Oasis of Peace" in Turkish, and this name is in line with the synagogue's ideal of being a place of worship in peace and tranquility. Designed by architects Elyo Ventura and Bernar Motola, it was built on the site of a building that was once a Jewish Primary School.


Neve Shalom Synagogue is known as one of the most active synagogues in Turkey and hosts a variety of religious events such as Shabbat services, weddings, funerals, Bar Mitzvahs, circumcision ceremonies and religious holidays.


Today, Neve Shalom Synagogue continues to play a central role in the religious and cultural life of the Turkish Jewish Community. Neve Şalom, an important stop for visitors who want to explore the Jewish heritage in Istanbul, attracts attention with both its architectural beauty and historical importance. It also offers a rich cultural experience with a variety of events held during Hanukkah and other Jewish holidays.
