The Great Synagogue of Slonim has been the focal point of Jewish life in Slonim since the 1640s. It is undoubtedly one of the jewels in the remarkable heritage of the once vibrant Jewish life that could be found all across Eastern Europe.
Its significance was recognised in the recent ‘Historic Synagogues of Europe’ mapping project commissioned by the Foundation for Jewish Heritage which highlighted both its cultural heritage value and its very poor condition.
The Great Synagogue is in danger and we invite you to join our international campaign to help save and restore it, ensuring that the building, with its rich Jewish past, can serve the present and future
