Photos: The Synagogue of Aleppo, from Ben Judah

22 Nov

From his (@b_judah) Twitter account. Because apparently the Judah clan is from Aleppo. When posted he noted that some of people in the photos look like ghosts. Pretty fitting I’d think, for Syrian Jewry, for Aleppo and for a Syria itself now full of ghosts.

No other information available. Aleppo must have had more than one synagogue, no? And, were Syrian Jews Sephardic or some other kind of eastern/Mizrahi Jew? Or mixed?
