The Oslo Synagogue is a synagogue in Oslo, Norway. The congregation was established in 1892, but the present building was erected 1920. Architectural historian Carol Herselle Krinsky describes the two-story tall, stuccoed building with a round tower topped with a spire supporting a Star of David as resembling "a simple and charming country chapel.'
The synagogue was the site of a 2006 attack with firearms by four men. No one was injured. The four were a 29-year-old man of Pakistani origin, a 28-year-old Norwegian-Pakistani, a 28-year-old Norwegian of foreign origin, and a 26-year-old Norwegian.
