  Contemporary synagogue in Rotterdam, The Netherlands

© Willy Lindwer, Photographer: Lindwer, Willy, 2002

The synagogue of the Liberaal Joodse Gemeente replaced a former kindergarten. Building segments were demolished and new parts were added. The synagogue was dedicated in 1996. The architect B.M.W. van der Velden was also responisble for the designs of the Torah Ark and bimah. The building contains the shul, three classrooms, a community hall, and an office space for the Rabbi.

The entrance of the synagogue, including parts of the interior, is decorated with Jerusalem stone.
