Opening ceremony: The Green Synagogue in Rezekne, Latvia

On the occasion of the closing ceremony of the project 'Restoration of the Green Synagogue of Rezekne, including the Creation of Wooden Architecture Heritage Centre and an exhibition on Jewish cultural heritage', there will be an official opening of the Green Synagogue in Rezekne in Latvia 22 January.

Dating back to 1845, the Green Synagogue is the last remaining synagogue of 11 synagogues in Rezekne, Latvia. Thanks to funding from the EEA Grants, the wooden synagogue has now been restored.

The restoration project was launched in April 2014 under the Latvian 'Conservation and revitalisation of cultural and natural heritage' programme.

The project, which has been implemented in cooperation with Sam Eyde upper secondary school in Norway, will be completed by the end of the year. The opening ceremony of the Green Synagogue will be held 22 January 2016.
