Traenheim (German: Tränheim) is a commune in the Bas-Rhin department in Grand Est in north-eastern France.

A Jewish house church from 1723 survives. It is an upstairs room in a half-timbered house renovated for use as a place of public worship over the "vociferous" objections of the town's pastor but with the permission of the government. The room still has Hebrew prayers on the walls.[1]
