After being persecuted in Thessalonika, Paul and Silas were sent away to Berea. As always Paul headed over to the synagogue. Acts 17:10-15

The following pictures are of the current synagogue in Berea. This synagogue is not an antiquity but the location is most probably where the synagogue in Acts 17 was located.

Acts 17:11 Now these(Bereans) were more noble-minded than those in Thessalonica, for they received the word with great eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see whether these things were so!

During World War II, the Nazis exterminated about 800 of the city's Jews. Only 2 Jewish families remain in the town of Berea today.
