ISTANBUL—The Jewish commu-
nity in Turkey is one of the oldest
and most conscious of its heritage.
It now numbers about 44,000 of
whom 37,000 live in Ankara.
The recent visit by Israel's (Sep-
hardic) Chief Rabbi Yitzhak Nis-
sim highlighted their condition.
His impressions of that visit illus-
trate the degree of tolerance shown
by the Turkish authorities towards
the Jews, and also some of the
community's present problems.
That visit, at the end of July,
amounted to a holiday for Tur-

the Jews from Spain, the Ottoman

community achieved great import-
Rabbi Nissim visited Turkey at

Rabbi, David Asseo, extended
when Rabbi Nissim made a brief
stopover at Istanbul Airport on his
way to Rome. The visit was then
coordinated with the Turkish gov-
ernment, and after winding up his
Rome visit, • Rabbi Nissim, accom-
panied by his son, Dr. Meir Bena-
yahu, diriector of the Ben-Zvi In-
stitute, flew to Istanbul.
Guides and bodyguards were
provided by the Turkish authori-

An interpreter was provided by
the Israel Legation in Ankara.
A chance cordial meeting be-
tween Rabbi Nissim and the Tur-
kish foreign minister took place
in the lobby of the Hilton Hotel
where Rabbi Nissim stayed.
At the end of the visit, the presi-
dent of the Jewish community,
Yisrael Menashe, responded to an
appeal by Rabbi Nissim for the
intensification of religious life and
Jewish education by saying that
although he himself was not reli-
gious, he was grateful for Rabbi
Nissim's remarks which, he said,
"will henceforth be our guide."
