Description

The Old-New Synagogue has been Europe's longest operating synagogue for over 700 years. Services only ceased from 1942-45 after the Nazi occupation, and today it is the heart of Jewish worship. The whitewashed synagogue is topped with brick gables and since the 13th century its interior has been starkly plain and little altered.
