Window Grill Istanbul

Window Grill Istanbul Magen David
Photo of a peculiar rounded Star of David in a window grill at the Beit Israel small synagogue, in Istanbul's Sisli neighborhood; courtesy of Doc Kozzak who published it on Flickr. The synagogue was the target of a terrorist attack on November 15 2003. Completely destroyed at the time of the attack, it was almost rebuilt since. The district is mainly Christian, but Jews and Moslems live there too.
