Rīga Synagogue information
Built in 1905, this art nouveau–style synagogue was the only one to survive the Nazi occupation – to torch it in the tightly packed Old Town would have put neighbouring buildings at risk. It reopened for worship during the Soviet period but was damaged by bomb attacks by neo-Nazis in 1995 and 1998, following independence. It was only fully restored in 2009 after an infusion of EU money.
