Greece’s Romaniote Jews are among the oldest and less known Jewish communities of Europe. Living in Greece since the BCE years, the Romaniotes adopted the Greek language and blended it with Hebrew words, forming a unique dialect in written and oral form. Worshiping in Hebrew and daily speaking in Greek they kept their traditions, customs and habits along with the local Christian population.
