Whispers of Ghosts:

Thessaloniki’s Jewish History

For more than twenty centuries, Thessaloniki was the shelter for the persecuted Jews of Europe. Uprooted throughout their long history from other historical centers of the Diaspora, they were transplanted in this city, creating a large and vibrant Jewish Community, indisputably one of the most important ones in the world, especially during the period 1492­-1943.

Precise indications about the chro­nology of the first settlement of Jews in Thessaloniki are lacking. They may have arrived from Alexandria, Egypt, around 140 BCE. However, we do not possess any hard evidence that would have allowed us to nail down with certainty this event, that remains to this day, an unsolved historical problem.

Real Estate in Greece


Israelis are investing in real estate in Greece

an article by the law firm NEXUS

The residential and commercial real- estate market, as it currently formed in Greece, is a highly profitable market, that sets the ground for many property investments. The collapse of the prices in the urban centers, due to the severe financial crisis of the last decade, along with the great growth of tourism in Athens and Thessaloniki, have made these two cities, a place of opportunities. During the last couple of years, many Israelis have shown great interest in investing in properties in Athens and Thessaloniki, as this is an investment with a very high return (among the higher one can find in EU countries), contrary to the current situation in Israel, where real-estate prices are dramatically high.

 

The investments already made by Israelis are large ones, such as hotels, malls or block of apartments or smaller ones, such as flats and apartments especially in the heart of the two cities. The options for the potential foreign investors are many, some of them choose to renovate and rent their apartments, having a stable monthly income, they are able to short- term rent their apartments via online platforms, such as Airbnb or they can renovate and re-sell it, making a profit. It should be noted that if the total sum of properties equals (or exceeds) the amount of 250.00 euros a residence-permit for the owner and his/her family members (wife/husband, children, parents) is granted. This permit allows the beneficiaries to stay, study and travel among the EU countries without limitations.

 

Is it safe to buy property in Greece?

 

In general, the notarial contract and the certificate of the civil engineer that is required for the notary contract secures that the property being sold is legally built and transferred by the legal owner, while the legal search ensures that the property is free of any burdens (e.g mortgages).

How to spend 48 hours in Thessaloniki


Founded in 315BC, Thessaloniki, the second-largest city in Greece and the capital of ancient Greek Macedonia, has been called an open-air museum because of the wealth and diversity of its buildings, churches, monuments, walls and fortresses. It is heaven for history lovers.

Sephardic Recipies from Thessaloniki

 

From the

'Cookbook of the Jews of Greece'
by Nicholas Stavroulakis (1932-2017)

Lycabettus Press, 1986

‘Traditional’ is always a difficult term to use when being applied to a kitchen. A truly gifted cook is of two sorts - either one who can doggedly follow an accurate recipe so as to re-create exactly the same dish or the more cavalier sort who can innovate and even introduce new and even eccentric twists to old recipes depending on the availability of ingredients or the dominant contemporary ‘culinary’ style. In the case of the cuisine of Thessaloniki this is especially true. For example it is obvious that many of the recipes are not in a direct transmission from the Iberian Peninsula.
