Halki Seminary

    The Patriarchal Theological Seminary of Halki is located on the Turkish island known as Heyelbiada in the Bosporus straits. It was closed in 1971 by the Turkish government and is the subject of much controversy since it is the only seminary in Turkey and the position of Ecumenical Patriarch can only be filled by a Turkish citizen.

Hi there Stavros,

Thanks for sharing the links here. I sent them to my father, but he goes too long back to much older songs :-)

I see my mission a one which should bring the two countries I love together as much as possible and so, although not exactly aligning with the subject, I allowed myself to add a link to a song that I really like (although it brings me to tears each time). We are commemorating and honoring the memory of the Holocaust victims today and so this comes in the right timing. I hope you forgive me for adding the link here (it is boring in my bones and I have to share it with you and the good people who flow your blog):

In addition, I will add another song. A coproduction of Dalaras and Poliker:

Bless you all,




Thanks for the links. Great music by Yehuda Poliker, who I've heard before and enjoyed very much.

Memory eternal.

זכר צדיק וקדוש לברכה
לחיי העולם הבא


My pleasure Stavros. Nothing like music to bring us together.
Take care my dear friend

Searching for Ithaka

  • Keep Ithaka always in your mind. Arriving there is what you're destined for. But don't hurry the journey at all. Better if it lasts for years, so you're old by the time you reach the island, wealthy with all you've gained on the way, not expecting Ithaka to make you rich. Ithaka gave you the marvelous journey. Without her you wouldn't have set out. She has nothing left to give you now. And if you find her poor, Ithaka won't have fooled you. Wise as you will have become, so full of experience, you'll have understood by then what these Ithakas mean. C. P. Cavafy
