The Lancut Synagogue, Lancut

The Łańcut Synagogue is a Baroque synagogue in Łańcut, Poland. The Łańcut Synagogue is a rare surviving example of the four-pillar, vaulted synagogues that were built throughout the Polish lands in both wood and masonry from the sixteenth through the early nineteenth centuries. The synagogue was renovated in the mid-20th century, and underwent renovations in the years 1983-1990.ArchitectureThe synagogue is a simple Baroque, masonry building with a vestibule and side room, main hall and a women's balcony above the vestibule reached by an exterior staircase. The windows of the main hall are unusually large for a Polish synagogue; Krinsky believes that this may reflect the security of the Jews in Łańcut, who lived under the protection of the landowning family. The synagogue is built with eight, barrel-vaulted bays around a central Bimah, the four, massive, masonry pillars of which support the ceiling and roof. Painted, decorative plasterwork adorns the pillar capitals, ceiling, and walls. The floor in the restored building is made of concrete. The walls are decorated reproductions of the pre-war paintings. They feature traditional Jewish subjects, such as Noah and the Ark, symbols of the Zodiac, and images of musical instruments mentioned in the Book of Psalms.Images

  • Good spirit of this place is the Lord Guide. His comprehensive knowledge about the culture and everyday life of the Jews, which very gladly shares with visitors, very helpful in understanding this not existing in the world. The temple itself is a carefully renovated and outside the liturgical objects has a large collection of everyday objects, related to the life of the Jews. Sometimes doors are closed, but is given to them the phone call, to provide it. I recommend!

  • A special place saved from destruction by the Germans with hr. Potocki because. It is worth to listen to how the Jews sing inside the synagogue, an unforgettable experience. Unfortunately, the synagogue is usually closed and opened only for organized tours.
