Etz Hayim Synagogue

Etz Hayim Synagogue, which is estimated to be the first synagogue of the city and means 'tree of life', is claimed to belong to the Byzantine Period together with other synagogues with the same name.
The synagogue, which was rebuilt due to damage in many fires, was restored in 1851 by a philanthropist named Daniel Sidi after it was completely burned in the fire of 1841 and took its present form.

Etz Hayim Synagogue is not open for worship today.
