This is the only surviving synagogue in Vilnius, so we were surprised that it's not in most guidebooks. That may be because it's not really a tourist attraction. It's for serious people, Jewish or not. We were very happy that it was open when we arrived - you need to ring a bell. There was no one there when we... 更多
Beautiful building, nice place to visit. Not many synagogues were left after WWII killing Jews bonanza in Lithuania. This is one of the very few.
I was so looking forward to visiting the last (of 110) synagogue(s) in Vilnius, but it closed too early, so I was unable to. I can only ask (if every they read this): please keep to the posted opening times (which are very limited anyway).
Visiting the Vilnius synagogue is an interesting affair. Note that there are seperate entrances for men and women. Men should wear a hat, cap or similar. Just be respectful, don't take any pictures inside if there is a service going on and people will treat you nice and with great hospitality.
Before I went, I asked at the hotel if it was necessary to phone in advance. They said no, so I walked from Cathedral Sq., a nice and pleasant walk. Just rang the bell and walked inn. I was received by a very kind and sweet woman, who showed me the building and we were talking for one hour or... 更多
We visited Vilnius and of course we also wanted to see the synagogue, the only one left after WW2. It was really beautiful and we was welcomed by a nice woman who guided us around in the building. She also told us about the jewish tradition, the Torah and all the holy relics. Really interesting and worth a visit.
The shul was built in 1903 by people who were under the influence of the maskilim. In the Ezras noshim upstairs is an old Matzo oven that was used by Yiden in the Soviet times to bake matzos for Pesach. Shacharis in the weekdays is at 8.30am. The people are all very friendly and helpful.
Let me start by saying that the building is beautiful and I'm glad I had the opportunity to see this beautiful relic of a time when the Jewish community in Vilnius numbered in the tens of thousands. Unfortunately, the people at this synagogue today aren't very welcoming. My mother and I came with a tourguide earlier in the day and... 更多
We were fortunate to get into the Synagogue because a group was going in as we were standing outside reading the plaque and they asked us if we would like to come in also. It is very moving to be in that building in the old Jewish Ghetto where so many last their lives. One could almost hear the voices... 更多
