Summary

Bet Yaakov Synagogue is a synagogue in Istanbul, Turkey. Located at the Asian side of the Bosphorus in the area called Kuzguncuk. It is situated just beside a Greek Orthodox church and was built in 1878. Due to the fact that the Jewish population of Kuzguncuk moved away, it is kept alive by worshipers whose families originated there. Shabbat services on Saturday morning are held regularly.
