© , Photographer: Unknown,

The synagogue was built in 1872, according to the poject of the district architect Ferdynand Eichhorn. In 1896 it was heavily reconstructed by architect Mazurkiewicz (Eleonora Bergman, Nurt mauretański w architekturze synagog Europy Środkowo-Wschodniej w XIX i na początku XX wieku (Warszawa, 2004), pp. 149-150).

According to a memoir (Pinkas Zhirardov, p. 413 [Literarishe Bleter, no. 2 (3449), 15 January 1931]), the murals were painted by Moshe Epelboim.

The synagogue was destroyed in 11/11/1939 by the Nazis.
