  Old Wooden Synagogue in Konin, Poland

© , Photographer: Unknown,

The synagogue, built within the years 1733 to 1766, was in bad condition in 1818 and then demolished in the 1820s. A new synagogue was built in its place after 1825 (see Eleonora Bergman, Nurt mauretański w architekturze synagog Europy Środkowo-Wschodniej w XIX i na początku XX wieku (Warszawa, 2004), p. 127. See also Bergman, Eleonora and Jan Jagelski, Zachowane synagogi i domy modlitwy w Polsce. Katalog (Warsaw, 1996), p. 60.).

According to Bergman, the synagogue was decorated by a Jewish artist Zanvil Barash from Kępno.

No depiction of the synagogue is known.
