Description

The Remah Synagogue is named after Rabbi Moses Isserles who’s famed for writing a collection of commentaries and additions that complement Rabbi Yosef Karo’s Shulchan Aruch, with Ashkenazi traditions and customs. Remah Synagogue is the smallest of all historic synagogues of the Kazimierz district of Kraków. It is currently one of two active synagogues in the city. Originally called the “New Synagogue” to distinguish it from the Old Synagogue, (Stara Bożnica), the Remah Synagogue was built in 1553 at the edge of a newly established Jewish cemetery (today known as the “Old Cemetery”) on land owned by Israel ben Josef.
