Built at the beginning of the 20th century. On the right of the building, on the first floor, there was a school for Jews, while a room for prayers was on the left. People who came to worship used to face the direction of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. After World War II, this building hosted the House of Culture, a gym. At present no institution is functioning in the former synagogue building.
