linia 2012-02-21 REVITALIZATION OF THE SYNAGOGUE IN PRZYSUCHA

We invite you for a virtual walk through the 18th century synagogue in Przysucha (yid. Parshishe vel Przishe), erected between between 1774 and 1777. Towards the end of the 18th century Przysucha had been an important centre of Chassidism and gained considerable renown for its tzadikkim (Chassidic religious leaders): Abraham of Przysucha (d. 1806), Jacob Yitzhak ben Asher (1766-1813), known as the Holy Jew of Przysucha and credited with being the first propagator of Chassidism in Central Poland, and the latter’s disciple Simcha Bunem (1784-1827). Their ohelot (mausoleums), constructed in the 1980’s at the local Jewish cemetery, are still regularly visited by Chassidim from all over the world.
