  • Great Synagogue that you find among the narrow streets of downtown near the old port. Very interesting visitarla....si feel the scent of the Orient and a cultural presence "different". Another part of Chania don't miss it.

  • We were very kindly greeted by a girl who explained the history of the synagogue. It is an old Catholic Church, which has been entrusted to the Jews by the Ottomans in the 17th century during the second world war the entire Jewish community was massacred by the Germans, and the building was destroyed. The reconstruction since 1999, a new Jewish community now anime instead. In the garden you can see the graves of two rabbis and, upstairs, there is a small exhibition with photos on the reconstruction. A pretty fountain in the yard next to a plaque.

  • A place that is a port of the time capable of leading to an extraordinary past, long history of the Jewish community. Well rebuilt and really impressive.

  • Womderful and peaceful place.
  • the president of the synagogue was very nice and helpful over the phone. great place to visit!
  • Truly memorable. I'm not a synagogue visitor type, but this one and its story are special. The docents are so forthcoming and earnestly into the spirit of it, and their earnestness is contagious. You won't regret visiting Etz Hayyim.
  • Nice old synagogue
  • It was a pleasure to take part at your Service tonight.
