EDJC 2023 > Virtual exhibition “The History of Nożyk Synagogue”
The Professor Moses Schorr Foundation is about to celebrate its 20th anniversary. Our celebration aims to highlight the story of the Ryfka and Zelman Nozyk Synagogue, the sole synagogue in Warsaw that survived the war. We would like to invite you to an exhibition titled “The History of the Nozyk Synagogue.”
Up until now, the early history of the synagogue, starting from its establishment in 1902, has remained largely unexplored. Furthermore, many historians have inaccurately noted the date of Zelman Nozyk’s death, the synagogue’s founder. Over the past two years, we have dedicated our efforts to researching the synagogue’s history, and during Shavuot 2022, we shared some of our findings with members of the Warsaw Jewish Community.
Our objective is to rekindle the memory of the founder, the members, rabbis, cantors, and the diverse range of religious and social activities the synagogue was involved in. Regrettably, historians often overlook the 17 months of the synagogue’s operation during World War Two, a period when it provided support to ghetto inhabitants enduring dire conditions.
Our virtual exhibition will showcase replicas of documents, photographs, and newspaper clippings predating the war and those published throughout World War Two. Certain materials, such as the timeline, will be available for download, enhancing accessibility and enabling us to share the synagogue’s captivating narrative with a wider audience.
