Ionanna Galanaki is completing her PhD at Southampton University on the revival of the Etz Hayyim synagogue and community in the ancient port of Chania, Crete. In this intensely personal essay, she pays homage to the late Nikos Stavroulakis, who was a key figure in her research. Stavroulakis spearheaded the restoration of the synagogue and developed it as a religious and cultural center that is also used for worship by a diverse community that he himself said “accommodates Jews of every variety of self identity as well as non-Jews.” He died in May, 2017; we published other tributes to him at the time.
