A Jewish Sanctuary at Tekirdag-Asyaport

Asyaport, one of the top 10 ports in Europe built by Soyuer Family and MSC at Tekirdag Barbaros, broke new ground by building inside the complex a mosque, a church and a Jewish temple. The Jewish temple inside the port complex was decorated by the operating company in cooperation with the Chief Rabbinate of Turkey. 

The Chief Rabbinate of Turkey, after approving the temple’s conformity with Jewish traditions, provided prayer books and other supplies such as kippas.
