According to Feliks Kiryk, ("Miasto Rymanów od XV do schyłku XVIII w." in Rymanow, Dzieje miasta I zdroju, ed. F. Kiryk, Rymanow, 1985, p.32) the existence of the masonry synagogue was confirmed in the Rymanow parish files in 1744. Specific information about the construction of the existing synagogue belongs to the late 18th century. The main structure is based on a rectangular shape, with the prayer hall measuring 11 m x 14 m and walls 11 m high and 2 m thick. The semicircular windows of the synagogue are highly elevated. There are three each on the southern and northern sides and the sulfuric, and then two on the eastern and western sides. On the southern side there are a number of windows on the lower level that opened into the women's section. The synagogue’s tower was built on circular plan and is partly integrated in the nave’s block. At the end of the 19th century the synagogue was reconstructed. A four-pillar bimah supporting the vault was built in the center ofthe prayer hall. The building was then damaged during WWII. The murals are preserved in a fragmentary state on the synagogue walls.
