Located in Kemeraltı, Shalom Synagogue was one of the first communities active in İzmir and was probably founded in the 17th century.
A small courtyard with a "sukkah" leads to the synagogue, and the roof of the sukkah is decorated with a crown, a unique decoration unknown from elsewhere. The synagogue has an unusual structure, with benches adjacent to the walls, the holy chest next to the eastern wall, and two smaller chests on each side, while the ark is adjacent to the opposite wall. However it is apparent that in the past, the ark used to stand at the center of the hall, inside a frame made of four pillars, and it was only later that it was moved to the back wall. Two staircases lead to the impressive ark carved of wood.
The synagogue has undergone many changes over the years, but unlike the other synagogues and many houses in the Jewish quarter, it was miraculously saved from the great fire of 1841, when the fire stopped just before the entrance to the synagogue.
Installed at the front of the synagogue, there is an ancient marble tablet, depicting in Hebrew the history of the synagogue during the great fire.
