Visit the Only Surviving Synagogue in Warsaw: The Nożyk Synagogue

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.

Monday – Friday 9:00 am – 5:00 pm

\Sunday: 11:00 am – 5:00 pm

During Shabbat and other Jewish holidays the Synagogue is closed for the visitors.
