Friends of the
Slonim Great Synagogue
The Slonim Great Synagogue in Belarus has been a focal point of Jewish life since the 1640s. It is a remarkable testament to one of the many once vibrant Jewish communities found all across Eastern Europe prior to 1939.
Its significance stands out in the authoritative Historic Synagogues of Europe mapping project. In the study, the Foundation for Jewish Heritage highlighted both the unique value of its art and architecture and its very poor condition. Friends of the Slonim Great Synagogue want to raise awareness of this, ensuring that the building, with its rich Jewish past, can serve the present and live on as a statement of hope for the future.
