Very nice place
Well preserved memory about “old Jewish town”life that was full many years ago but disappeared
The guide ( Voldemort) does excellent work : a lot of knowledge and personal touch
Very warm atmosphere with a lot of respect for people who loved and worked here for generations but ... almost disappeared
Great restoration work. The small museum on the second floor ( Ezrat Nashim) is very touchy and personal
Must visit for anybody who wants to know more about people and culture

Has limited working hours that was a pity. We had a chance to walk around and peek into the windows only. Found a good cafe next to eat - seemed authentic and friendly and had a garden tables. Also market is a cool place to visit and that's next to the synagogue.

The Synagogue was built in 1845 and it is considered to be the oldest wooden buildings in Rezekne. Before World War II in Rezekne there were 11 synagogues, only one has survived until today -The Rezekne Green Synagogue. Synagogue was open until the 1990s, then it was closed due to safety reasons (its emergency condition). The State Inspection for Heritage Protection of Latvia added it in the list of the most endangered sites in 2004. Rezekne City Council by the support of Norwegian Financial Instrument is carrying out reconstruction of the building. Within the framework of the project it will be possible to create the exhibition devoted to the history of Rezekne's Jews.
