Remuh Synagogue (Synagoga Remuh), Krakow

Religious Site · Tourist Spot
The Remah Synagogue (Polish: Synagoga Remu) is a 16th-century Jewish temple and the smallest of all historic synagogues in the Kazimierz district of Kraków, Poland. The synagogue is named after Rabbi Moses Isserles (c.1525–1572), known by the Hebrew acronym ReMA (רמ״א, pronounced ReMU) who's famed for writing a collection of commentaries and additions that complement Rabbi Yosef Karo's Shulchan Aruch, with Ashkenazi traditions and customs. It is currently one of two active synagogues in the city.

  • It is a small synagoga in the old Jewish neighborhood of Kazimierz. The synagoga is small but it deserves to be seen for the history. Don't miss the cemetery beside.  more »

  • You have to pay and men have to wear Kippah Skullcap. The actual place of worship is very small with a largish cemetery beside it which is undergoing restoration.  more »
  • Beautiful ancient synagogue and graveyard with grave of several famous sages. Worth a visit as it's probably one of the few places preserved after the war and the graves undisturbed, though I don't know to what extent the synagogue had to be restored or was simply somehow spared the disastrous consequences of the holocaust. It is probably not so easy to access in a wheelchair on your own but with help you would probably manage the synagogue. The graveyard paths are probably too uneven and narrow for a wheelchair but you should at least be able to have a peek. I suspect that much of the centre of Kazimiriez is challenging in a wheelchair, given the cobblestone paving.
  • This place is small, but we'll preserve. The entrance fee is 10pln and allow you to go inside the synagogue and to the cemetery next to it. There are lots of places to eat nearby.
  • Fantastic park and walkway from one end of town to the other. Good surface for a rolling suitcase,!!!
  • An interesting place to visit. Recommended
  • The oldest 500 years synagogue in Krakow and still a place to worship. Entrance fee 10 pln. Worth a visit together with the cemetery
