Now is the restoration of the old synagogue in Ostrog, Rivne region. At this point in the synagogue are working indoors. Actual photos shared a local reporter, Inna Sobko.
At first it was a small wooden building, and in the XVII century synagogue was repaired and finished by the Rabbi Samuel Edel’s (Marsue), since it began to be called “synagogue Marsue”.
Also about the synagogue goes a few amazing stories. For example, during the Russo-Polish war in 1792, the building was deliberately fired, as it took a defensive castle. However, none of the bomb at the walls of the synagogue exploded.
In 2000 the local government decided to restore the synagogue. But the work ended very quickly: it was dismantled partitions after the building was vegetable stock, and dismantled the roof. After that, the synagogue stood empty and unfinished for 15 years. During this time in the roof appeared the plants, the building began to crumble.
In 2015, the synagogue decided to rebuild — this time seriously. In early works, the builders found huge key length of 30 inches from the door of the old synagogue. It is not known whether this is a sign, but the work is still going on.
