B'nei Emuna prayer house – Jewish Culture Centre

ul. Meiselsa 17, Kraków

The one-storey building at the corner of Meiselsa Street (No. 17) and the Nowy Square (No. 5) is the former Bne Emuna prayer house erected in 1886 according to the design by Jacek Matusiński. After the Second World War it was used for various economic purposes, e.g. it housed a carpenter's shop. In the years 1988 -1993 the building was renovated and adapted for the Jewish Culture Centre of the Judaica Foundation according to the design by Dariusz Gruszka. The funds for this purpose were transferred mainly by the US Congress and also by  the Municipality of Kraków. The ceremonious opening of the Centre took place on the 24th of November 1993.
