Ohel Jakov Choral Synagogue

  Ožeškienės 13      (+370) 61 40 31 00     more than a year ago
Built in 1871, this beautiful building in the city centre hides a wealth of wonderful things to see inside but can only be visited by prior appointment which involves making a telephone call and hoping that someone at the other end speaks English.

In your description of the synagogue it is stated to have one of the most beautiful ALTARS. I think this is incorrect as Synagogues - Altars is used in biblical times - do not have them. I think perhaps it should either be the Bimah, from which the Torah is read, or The Ark in which the Torah Scrolls are kept. I also sent this last night so apologise if you receive this twice. Please could you let me have your reply as soon as possible. Many thanks

Is this also called the Blue Synagogue?

WHO SHOULD I CONTACT TO MAKE A DONATION TO THE SYNAGOGUE OF KAUNAS<br /><em><br />Hi,<br />Suggest the best place to start is the Jewish Community Centre in Kaunas. We list it on the website. We'll enlarge and improve our Jewish Kaunas section this spring. So do please come back again. Ed.</em><br /><br type="_moz" />
