Tempel Synagogue

ul. Miodowa 24, Kraków

The newest of the synagogues in Kazimierz, this was built in the second half of the19thc. by the Association of Progressive Israelites. Services were delivered here in Polish and German; changes were introduced to the liturgy, which raised protests among Orthodox Jews. The interior of the synagogue has been renovated by the World Monuments Fund. The women's gallery and the ceiling are richly adorned with stuccoes and frescoes in an Oriental-Moorish style. The fine 19th-century stained glass windows on the ground floor and the upper floor add to the charms of the synagogue interior.
