280 Broome Street (photographed August 6, 2004).

Currently a synagogue and museum, the Kehila Kedosha Janina Synagogue is the only remaining Romaniote synagogue in the western hemisphere. The congregation was founded by Greek Jewish immigrants on the Lower East Side in 1906. The building was constructed in 1927.

The original congregants journeyed from Ioannina (Janina) in northern Greece to New York City and built this synagogue on Broome Street. The museum now helps preserve the congregation’s Romaniote cultural heritage.
