The Jewish Museum in Thessaloniki has expanded, adding a new wing with several new galleries. The official reopening took place a week ago, and Greek President Prokopios Pavlopouplos was in attendance. You can view a few images of the redesigned space here: https://www.snf.org/…/jewish-museum-of-thessaloniki-opens-…/. I’m really looking forward to seeing the new exhibit on our upcoming trip to Bulgaria, North Macedonia, and Greece. If you’d like to join us, let me know. https://sephardicbalkans.com/bulgaria/
