In Ioannina, in northwest Greece, lives a small community of Jews virtually unknown in other parts of the world. They are Romaniotes (Greek speaking Jews), descendants of Byzantine Jews who have been living in Ioannina since the 8th century. From medieval times until the Holocaust, the Jewish community of Ioannina was one of the leading Jewish centers in the Levant. The Jews of Ioannina, by Rae Dalven, is a unique publication, with the three basic sections on history, religious life, and social life bringing to light the world of a fascinating community.
227 pages, with contemporary black and white photographs, an appendix on three traditional Judeo-Greek hymns, bibliography, and index, hardback.
