July's Article:
The Jews of Greece

While Greece was still under Ottoman rule, there was a Jewish community living in Thessaloniki that bore the proud title of "City and Mother in Israel." This is an honorary title granted since biblical times to the largest and the most pious and erudite Jewish communities living in Diaspora. The number of synagogues and centers of learning, not to mention secular Jewish cultural institutions such as theaters and music schools, was enormous. Greek Jewish TraditionsOnly in such a cultural and religious diversity could a Jewish community flourish which, right up until the early 20th century, constituted at least half, if not more than half, of the city's population. Its influence ran deep and could be felt right into the 1920s, when it was still customary for all traffic to stop running from Friday evening to Saturday evening and for trade and work in the harbor to cease. Thessaloniki (see Salonika Jews and Dervishes) was a Jewish town and its way of life was determined not only by the Jewish clerics, but also by the Western-orientated Jewish merchants, industrialists, and self-assured Jewish workers and employees in the big tobacco manufacturing industries, for example. Jewish merchants also played a prominent role in the food sector. One of Greece's biggest cookie and candy firms was run by the Allatini family, whose name is the only one that has remained a household name in Greece since the Holocaust put a violent end to Jewish history in Thessaloniki (see Legacy of Courage : A Holocaust Survival Story in Greece). It is one of the few Mediterranean cities that has a living memory of a strong Jewish culture.

The 5th walk guides us through the business center of 19th-century Athens. It also takes us to the finest churches of the 10th and 11th centuries, architecturally impressive buildings with elegant decoration, and to the main neoclassical churches of the 19th century, that have very little in common with the former.

Simi FishermanGEOGRAPHY: coastline and a population of 2,273. It is 230 nautical miles from Piraeus with which there is a car and passenger ferry link twice a week, via Amorgos, Astypalaia, Nisyros Telos and Rhodes. Once a week there is a boat to Kalymnos, Kos, Kastellorizo and another to Karpathos, Kos and Crete. A local craft travels to the rest of the Dodecanese and Samos all year round, while there is a daily service to Rhodes and a hydrofoil linking Symi with Rhodes and Kos. The island's capital is Symi. Its terrain is mountainous with small valleys in the interior and its climate mild and dry. The coastline follows the configuration of the land, there are sheer cliffs in places and small sandy beaches in others. Symi is still an unspoiled island with no cars and plenty of steep stepped streets. The small coastal villages, its elegant capital and quiet life style are appreciated by those who want a restful vacation in a tranquil environment.

Symi VillageHISTORY:: The island was inhabited in prehistoric times and myth relates that this was the birthplace of the Three Graces. In antiquity it was also known as Aigle, Metapontis and, finally, Symi after the nymph of that name, wife of Poseidon and mother of Chthonios. Prometheus, son of lapetos, sought refuge on Symi when banished by Zeus and, according to myth, lived there till the end of his day Lelegians, Rhodians, Argives and Lacedaemonians all came to Symi and were later followed by the Romans, Byzantines and the Knights of St. John. In 1522 Symi fell to the Turks. Throughout its history Symi served as trading and commercial station. From 137 the Knights of St. John helped promote marine and mercantile activities by granting the island special privileges which the Symiotes managed to maintain during the period Turkish rule. In fact the island achieved a considerable degree of self-government in the 0ttoman period. Such was the acme in the days that Symiotes bought tracts of land off the opposite coast of Asia Minor. For many years Symi was renowned for its shipwrights, fishermen and sponge-divers and the island amassed both wealth and glory. Symi BoatA reminder of this former pre-eminence is the copy of the trireme-like relief at the base of the acropolis of Lindos on Rhodes - nowadays by the harbor. Symi played an active role in the 1821 War of Independence but did not ma age to secure its liberation. The island's decline was signaled by the appearance steam ships and continued during the Italia occupation from 1912 onward. It was in Symi that the Protocol delivering the Dodecanese from the German army of occupation to the Allies was signed (8th March 1945). It was incorporated in the Greek state in 1948.

SIGHTS - MONUMENTS: The island's capital, Symi, is divided into Ano Symi (called Chora by the locals) and Kato Polis (Yalos or Aiya los) and is located on the north side of the island. Many of the beautiful Symiote houses, which once embellished the water's edge, still stand though all around are burnt-out shells of others, mostly destroyed by incendiary bombs in the last war.
The majority of houses at Yalo date to the 19th century, but those in Chora are significantly older. As one climbs up the steep, stepped street from the main square (Plateia tis Skalas), to left and right Symi Boatrise impressive Neoclassical houses. Not only are the external embellishments, doors and windows, preserved, but the wood-carved interiors also. Symi has a great tradition in wood carving, which formerly played its part in the island's economy. Ship's carpentry is still an important and well-paid skill. In the local museum there are sculptures and inscriptions of the Hellenistic and Roman era, Byzantine icon and coins, as well as folk art objects on display. Apart from the mansions in Chora, there are many other sights of interest on Symi. The town is dominated by the castle of the Knights, built of ancient material and nowadays abandoned. Here too stands one of the most charming churches on the island, the Greek Virgin. There are other interesting churches, many with mosaic decoration, and several monasteries. At Pedi (2 km. east) are those of St. George and of the Holy Trinity. At Emboreion (4 km. north) there are Byzantine remains and a church of the Virgin. Important monasteries are those of the Great Savior and St. Michael Roukouniotis.

Symi Island MapAfter the town of Symi (Yalos and Cho the most interesting place on the island is the monastery of the Taxiarch Michael Panormitis, patron saint of Symi. The monastery w built at the beginning of the 18th century the sheltered bay of Panormitis, hence the epithet, on the southwest coast. Boats come here daily, both from the town of Symi a from Rhodes, from where one-day excursions are organized. On the Taxiarch's feast day November 8th, and at Whitsuntide, pilgrims flock here not only from the whole of the Dodecanese, but from Crete and other parts Greece. There are facilities catering for visitors at Panormitis for they come not only for the monastery but also the gorgeous scene and environment. One can reach here caique from the harbor. Caiques also sail the picturesque bay of Aghios Emilianos a the tiny islet opposite where the chapel to the saint stands, to the beach at Nanou, perha the best on the island, to Marathounta, Disalona and the islets of Aghia Marina and Nimos. The beaches at Yalos, Pedi and Emboreion (Nimborio) are easily reached on foot by caique and are ideal for swimming. Private boats can anchor in the many bays (Yalo Pedi, Aghios Emilianos, Nimborio, Panormi tis). There is a refueling station at Yalos. Accommodation is available in hotels (two at Yalos), rented rooms, houses and hostels Chora, Pedi, Yalos and Panormitis.
