Opening of Ludza Great Synagogue after restoration

On August 11, 2016 Ludza Great Synagogue was opened after restoration.

The Great Synagogue of Ludza is a culture (architecture) monument of state importance and is the oldest synagogue in Latvia and Baltic States. It is located in the area of another monument – the Historical Centre of Ludza Town. The Synagogue is considered to be a unique Jewish cultural monument in north-eastern Europe, mostly lost elsewhere in Europe during the 20th century. In order to keep the culture and historical heritage and to ensure qualitative access to cultural services for the society, the synagogue building has been restored and expositions have been created.
