“B’nai B’rith Lodge “Filon” Athens has organized over long weekend’s International Labor day (1/5/2015) a visit to the historical Jewish community of the city of Trikala, located in central mainland, Greece. The venue was part of our long standing solidarity visits to small communities all over the country.


 

Fifty people escorted by Athens’ recently retired rabbi & brother Isaac Mizan travelled to Trikala where we held Shabbat services at local synagogue, where the last full Shabbat morning service has actually taken place almost 3 years ago !

 

Besides celebrating a beautiful and moving Shabbat, our stay included trips to the nearby picturesque mountainous villages of Elati and Pertouli as well as at the artificial Lake Plastiras.

 

Once more, we strengthened our bonds while enjoying nature’s beauty and tasting local agricultural produce and further renewed our promise to meet soon again and keep loyal to the afore mentioned lodge’s solidarity goal”.
