Bet Nissim Synagogue (Kuzguncuk, 1872)

This synagogue, called “Virane” or “Kal de Ariva” (upper synagogue), was built in the 1840s in Kuzguncuk in the Asian side of Istanbul. It was restored and reopened to the Jewish community in 1994. After the most recent restoration, the synagogue was renamed as Bet Nissam, which was the name of a contributor (d. 1997) to the Jewish community in Kuzguncuk.
