close to the synagogue in The City. University of the West Indies
students, led by doctoral candidate Michael Stoner, uncovered a mikvah
during an archaeological dig.

ISTANBUL. Quincentennial Foundation Museum of Turkish Jews.

former synagogue, which once had about 200 members, officially opens
today as a museum and cultural and community centery.

earliest sign of Jewish habitation in Austria, in the form of a silver
pendant they found inside a third-century C.E. grave, which bears the
"Shma Yisrael" prayer.
