Kiev Central Synagogue

JewishPress Logo

On my first day in Kiev, I was in need of a prayer minyan and kosher food and I was directed to Kiev's Central Synagogue. also knows as the Brodsky Shul because it was built in 1898 by eminent Kyiv philanthropist Lazar Brodsky. The striking architectural monument served as a Jewish religious center for nearly thirty years until it was seized by the Soviet Union in 1926. For a short time it hosted a handicraft club, after which it was turned into a doll theater. During the Nazi occupation, Germans used the synagogue as a stable for Wermacht horses. The building was returned to the Jewish community after the fall of the Soviet Union.
