DISCOVER THE LOST JONIŠKIS

JONIŠKIS SYNAGOGUE COMPLEX

The synagogue complex features two synagogues: The White and The Red Synagogues. After the restoration the synagogues became important cultural and representational centers of the city. The unique interior of The Red Synagogue, such as celling decorations, wall paintings, Torah ark or holy ark (hebr. aron kodesh), where once the Torah scrolls were contained, was recreated and restored. The synagogue displays an exposition “Jewish History and Culture of Joniškis Region”, which represents the history of the Jewish community of Joniškis till the start of The World War II. The exposition of The White Synagogue creatively conveys the historical development of Joniškis and the most important moments in the history of the city using modern means of exhibition.
