Reanimating Zamo?? Synagogue
From Abandoned Sacred Site to Vibrant Cultural Center
Zamość Synagogue, one of the few surviving Renaissance synagogues in Poland, was in a state of serious disrepair when its conservation began in 2009. With support from World Monuments Fund’s Jewish Heritage Program, the Foundation for the Preservation of Jewish Heritage in Poland restored the site and transformed it into a cultural center and the starting point for a regional tourist trail, the Chassidic Route. Zamo?? also serves as a venue for local events and activities, uniting the synagogue with the local community.
