Remuh Synagogue

Remuh Synagogue KrakowType: Monument
Address: Szeroka 40, Kazimierz


Opening hours: 9 - 18

Description:
The Remuh Synagogue is named after Rabbi Moshe Isserles (1525-1572), known by the Hebrew acronym REMA, the famous author of Ha-Mappah, about Jewish religious traditions and customs. The synagogue was built in 1553, adjacent to the newly established Jewish cemetery, today known as the Old Cemetery. The original building was destroyed by fire and in 1557 a new building was erected. Since then the synagogue has been rebuilt and restored a few times. During WWII the synagogue was stripped of its valuable ceremonial objects and historic furbishing and transformed into a storehouse of firefighting equipment. Also the cemetery was devastated, however, the tombstone of Rabbi Moshe Isserles was one of very few graves which remained intact. After the war the synagogue underwent a major renovation and regained much of its pre-war appearance and some valuable objects. The courtyard walls of the synagogue have built-in tablets in memory of the Jews of Krakow who died during the Holocaust. The interior features limestone walls and numerous chandeliers.
