The 'Synagogue' Center is a museum and a modern cultural center functioning in the building of the Renaissance synagogue in Zamosc. The synagogue was restored by the Foundation for the Preservation of Jewish Heritage in Poland thanks to the support of Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway within the framework of the EEA Financial Mechanism and the Norwegian Financial Mechanism. The Center was opened on April 5th, 2011. The President of the Republic of Poland Bronislaw Komorowski held honorary patronage over the opening ceremony.

Currently operating in the building of the 17th century synagogue is the 
Multimedia Museum of the History of the Jews of Zamość and the Surrounding Area. Several exhibitions, lectures and concerts as well as seminars and academic conferences also take place there. Thanks to the existence of the 'Synagogue' Center visitors can learn about the history of the Jewish community which over several centuries took part in shaping the region’s intellectual, religious and cultural identity. Part of the building has been adapted for the needs of local NGOs active in the area of culture. The synagogue also has a religious function, serving as a place of prayer to Jewish groups visiting Zamosc. More about the project >>
