Synagogue

Synagoga Pacov
The synagogue was built in 1823. The fire in 1864 left only its perimeter walls standing; the rest was rebuilt later. Striving to restore the building and use it for educational and cultural purposes, the Tikkun Pacov Synagogue Association NGO bought it in 2018 with the help of private donors and local municipality. The synagogue is now open to public during occasional events organized by the association. In 2020 it was declared a Cultural Monument.(see website)
