|Architectural style||Art Nouveau and Moorish Revival|
Malmö Synagogue (Swedish: Malmö synagoga, Hebrew: בית הכנסת של מאלמו) is the only synagogue in Malmö, Sweden. It was built in 1903 and designed by the architect John Smedberg. It has an Art Nouveau and Moorish Revival design. The services of worship are orthodox.
The synagogue was attacked with explosives on July 23, 2010. The explosion was caused with some kind of fireworks or firecracker containing too little gunpowder to seriously damage the building. A note threatening to bomb the building had been taped to the door the day before the bombing.
