by Elias Messinas

Back to Projects Page

Greek Architect Elias Messinas continues his research and documentation of the synagogues of Greece as part of his doctoral work at the National Technical University in Athens. Messinas, who now lives in Israel, has been visiting, describing and photographing Greek synagogues since 1993.  He is expanding his research through the consultation of historical and archival documentation in Greece and Israel.  Through the generosity of the Mitrani Family Foundation, ISJM has awarded  a $5,000 grant to assist Mr. Messinas's work.
