Description

Enter the world of Jewish social, cultural and religious life in Poland at The Old Synagogue. See Jewish ceremonial art, learn how Judaism co-existed with Poles in peacetime, and witness a history of true resilience in the face of adversity.

Standing strong as a powerful symbol of Jewish Heritage, the Old Synagogue likely dates back to the 15th century, making it one of the oldest in Europe.

Until the outbreak of WWII it stood as the epicenter of religious, cultural and social life for Kraków's Jewish community. Many of the treasures inside were stolen or destroyed by invaders, but some were transferred and stored away.

See a parchment scroll with the Torah text, embroidered curtains of the Ark, plus handicrafts, paintings and other items showcasing the Jewish way of life.

Learn about traditional dietary regulations in a Jewish home, the importance of prayer, and items related to honoring the dead. A real eye-opener for anyone interested in Poland's religious history.
