Project summary


The aim of the project is to preserve and adapt the wooden Pakruojis Synagogue as cultural heritage for the local community and to reuse it by establishing a Section of Children's Literature of Pakruojis District Municipality Juozas Paukstelis Public Library. The project helps to address social problems by providing leisure and literature for young people. The restoration contributes to job creation: people will be employed for the restoration and two people will be employed after expansion of the library. After restoration of the building, Jewish culture and history will be preserved for future generations and murals will be recreated. The reconstructed synagogue and exposition of Pakruojis Jewish culture and history will be opened for visitors. Increased number of visitors will be a positive factor for the economy and could increase incomes of small and middle-sized companies working in the field of trading and services. Pakruojis synagogue is listed in the Development Study of Pakruojis Cultural Heritage as a priority object for reconstruction of cultural heritage.
