I visited this synagogue a couple of years ago. It was a very emotional experience for me because this is where my ancestors were born and raised, married, prayed and died. My great grandfathers photo still hangs on the door to the smaller synagogue. He was the sexton in the synagogue before WWII.
I went into the main sanctuary to pray and was overcome by emotion. This was exactly where my grandparents were married and went to pray every saturday.
I intend to visit again this year.
This place I will never forget.

I uploaded a picture with opening hours. You can also make an appointment by phone. This synagogue is an absolute must see in lancut. Looking from outside at this very moderate building you cannot expect this breathtaking beautiful interior of the main praying hall. Amazing custodian of this place will guide you through the history of the synagogue, it’s main tzadik, and chasidic movement.

The exterior, with its peeling paint, gives no hint to the beauty of the interior of the beautifully restored synogogue. Built in 1761, the pillar capitals, ceiling and walls are of painted plasterwork.. The walls are decorated with traditional Jewish subjects, such as Noah and the Ark, symbols of the Zodiac, and images of musical instruments mentioned in the Book of Psalms. Panels of decorated prayers adorn the upper perimeter. The colorful central bima and vaulted ceiling....amazing to see such beauty and realize the richness of Polish Jewish history that is no more.

This beautifully preserved synagogue makes for an excellent connection to the extensive past Jewish history of Poland. The writings and wall paintings are magnificent, a reminder of the thriving community that lived here for almost 500 years.

We actually did nor visit indoors as the opening hours did not suit our travel plan. Recommended to visit as Poland at its best was multicultural and heterogenous in the past.It is a good symbol of a respect for the past and diversity as well as a tragic II WWW fate of jewish people.

The synagogue in Lancut is nice but it is close to the public most of the times. It is located right next to the castle.

Before WW2, Rzeszow was a very serious huge Jewish Center. The Synagogue of Lancut served the Jewish population from all around and was a big and beautiful symbol of the flourishing Jewish community there. During the war the building was partially destroyed and later turned into a grain storage, a function it fulfilled during te Communist regime too.
Only lately it has been cleaned and some of its beauty restored. It is still in shambles though and is a sad reminiscent of what has been and never again will be...

Our tour guide arranged for us to visit this magnificently restored synagogue. The little prayer room was beautiful, but then the caretaker opened the doors to the main sanctuary and WOW!

The- the title says it all. The place is small but beuatiful and wonderfully restored. There is a central raised Torah stand- six to eight steps to ascend to the platform, and the seating was all around it. Beuatiful colorful paintings and murals adorn the Toraj stand and the walls, along with colorful sections posting in Hebrew common prayers and liturgical passages. This place is not to be missed (although it is smaller and less striking than the one in Tikocyn, near Bialystok). On your way out (or in, for that matter), note the collection on the floor of reclaimed destroyed Jewish grave markers.
