For more than 1000 years Istanbul has been home to a vibrant Jewish community. After the Turkish conquest of Istanbul, Sultan Mehmet II encouraged immigration to re-populate the city. Over half a million Jews persecuted in Spain and Portugal were encouraged to establish themselves within the boundaries of the Ottoman Empire. In Istanbul, the new immigrants settled mostly near Galata – a quarter on the northern bank of the Golden Horn – where a Jewish community had existed since the early days of the Ottoman Era in Istanbul.
