Virtual Tour of the Gombin Synagogue

October 25, 2020 2:00 pm | Virtual Gombin Tour

Please join us for the Virtual Gombin tour to the iconic wooden Gombin Synagogue that stood at the heart of the Jewish community for 300 years until it was destroyed by the invading Nazi army in 1939.  See the haunting film made by Wojtek Wasilewski and his team using their architecturally-correct, scale model and listen to the words of Gombiner Henry Greenbaum remembering Yom Kippur in the 1930s.  Finally, we view the proposed memorial plaque in its anticipated location in the center of Gąbin. Invite your friends and family to watch.
