A new Queens College virtual exhibition is exploring one of the oldest Jewish communities in existence.
“Romaniote Memories, a Jewish Journey from Ioannina, Greece, to Manhattan: Photographs by Vincent Giordano,” features more than 100 photographs of the Romaniote Jewish community.
The millennia-old sect practices traditions dating back to ancient Greece and Rome. They emigrated to the Lower East Side and established a synagogue in 1927.
A virtual opening reception for the exhibition, along with a conversation with the curator, organizers and guests, is set for February 11 at 5 p.m.
