Gallery Synagoguе

Synagogue in Nis is the "prayer house" of the Jews in Nis; the objects is protected by the Jewish community and was built in the center of Nis in 1925.  Religious rituals were performed and people prayed and made their vows in the synagogue; members of the local Jewish community in Nis and the surrounding areas have been gathering here since the beginning of World War II.

Today the synagogue in Nis is not used for religious ceremonies but as a cultural monument . Many concerts , exhibitions , literary events take place here. Instead of the voice of rabbi and the sound of prayer you can hear the melodies of concerts , the voice of the poet's from the literature events , the noise from exhibitions.
