DEDE AGATCH:

Turkish port on the Ægean Sea, at the mouth of the Maritza, near Enos, European Turkey. It has about two hundred Jews in a population of three thousand. The community, founded in 1870, possesses a synagogue, and a primary school attended by thirty children. The rabbi acts also as shoḥeṭ, and mohel, and is paid out of the meat-tax: There are two charitable societies—a "biḳḳur ḥolim" and a "gemilut ḥasadim."
