A small Jewish community continues to live in Greece.  There are significant communities in Athens and Thessaloniki.

The community has further decreased since the Greek government-debt crisis. Many younger Jews are leaving the country, mostly to other European nations, though some have gone to Israel.   As of 2015, about 5,000 Jews live in Greece, mostly in Athens, with less than 2,000 in Thessaloniki.   The Greek Jewish community has traditionally been pro-European.
