A Synagogue, a Shtibl, a Tempel – Jewish houses of prayer in Krakow

A synagogue, a tempel, a kloiz, a shtibl or bet ha-midrash - these words describe different places where Jewish communities used to pray. There were more than a hundred of them in pre-war Krakow, but were they all as grand as those at Szeroka Street? Were they as crowded? Were they all located within what we call “the Jewish Quarter”? We invite you for a walking tour to the places connected with Jewish religious life, during which you will hear the stories about the best known and the completely forgotten Jewish houses of prayer in Kraków.
