Choral Synagogue of Vilnius
|Choral Synagogue of Vilnius|
|Location||Vilnius' Old Town, Lithuania|
The Choral Synagogue of Vilnius (Lithuanian: Vilniaus choralinė sinagoga) is the only synagogue in Vilnius that is still in use. The other synagogues were destroyed during World War II, when Lithuania was occupied by Nazi Germany.
The Choral Synagogue of Vilnius was built in 1903.
It is the only active synagogue that survived both the Holocaust and Soviet rule in this city that once had over 100 synagogues. International donations and a small community of Jews in Vilnius support the synagogue. The synagogue holds services and is open to visitors.
