in detail

It was the first Ashkenazi synagogue, that group Jews from Russia, Poland, Germany, Lithuania, Hungary and other European countries. It opened in 1941, although the community has existed since 1922. Its official name is Nidje Israel.

This synagogue is a replica of Shavel in Lithuania, because the person who financed the project made the condition that is should be the identical to the synagogue of the city he came from.

The inside is nineteenth century Romanesque style and this contrasts with the neo-colonial facade. It is a site that attracts locals and foreigners because it is not a common architectural style in the country. It is also a museum where activities related to religion, arts and citizenship are performed.
