History

At the beginning of the XIX century, local Jews delivered a petition to the Russian Emperor Nicholas II to give them permission in order to build a synagogue. After getting permission, they started to build the construction of “Ashkenazi‘’(Jewish). The building of the stone synagogue was finished in 1904 under the leadership of architect Semyon Vulkovich. It was an analog of the synagogues in Amsterdam and The Hague. During the Soviet period the building was used for different purposes. In 1993, the synagogue was given back to the Jewish Diaspora.
