The Golden Rose Synagogue, Turei Zahav

The Turei Zahav (TaZ) Synagogue is the oldest synagogue in Ukraine. It was built in the Jewish quarter in Lviv in 1582 as a private place of worship for the family of Yitzhak ben Nachman (Isaac Nachmanovych). The TaZ remained the main synagogue inside the city walls until 1801. Originally known as the Nachmanovych Synagogue, it was later named Turei Zahav Synagogue to honor a famous rabbi David Ha-Levi, who served as the Rabbi of Lviv between 1654-1667. The Synagogue was destroyed by the Nazis in 1941-42.
