    Take a look inside this synagogue built for a small group of Romaniote Jews who trace their roots to the town of Ionnina in northwestern Greece. The Kehila Kedosha Janina Synagogue & Museum is located at 280 Broome Street within the Lower East Side of Manhattan. This small synagogue was built in 1927 and was designated a New York City Landmark in 2005. The museum portion includes costumes from Janina, a large collection of alephs (distinctive hand-painted birth certificates), a literary center, and art gallery. Watch the video, and then plan your visit. The Museum operates from 11am to 4pm on Sundays by appointment. The Synagogue is open for Saturday services at 9am and on holidays. website: www.kkjsm.org phone: 212.431.1619 email: kkj18@msn.com
