The Nożyk Synagogue is the only synagogue in Warsaw which survived World War II. Even though, it was an area of the Small Ghetto. Germans used the building as a stable and depot. After the war the heavily demaged building was returned to the Warsaw Jewish Community and restored.
The synagogue was found by a married couple of merchants Zelman and Ryfka Nożyk who lived nearby on Próżna 9 Street. It was built between 1898-1902 in Romanesque style with Byzantine and Moorish ornaments. Its architecture refers to the Jerusalem Temple, based on an interpretation of the Biblical description.
Nowadays this beautiful synagogue is a daily place of worship and place of meetings for the Jews in Warsaw. It`s also a vibrant cultural center hosting concerts and exhibitions. I highly recommend to see the synagogue inside, it`s a beautiful place.
