It is small nice synagogue with an old jewish cemetery. If you buy a ticket for 10 zloty, you can visit both: synagogue and cemetery. There is a wall build from destroied grave stones and boards with names of people, who died during war conflicts.

This was a very interesting; although extremely small synagogue. Walking around the cemetery was quite moving; our guide told us how the gravestones were knocked down and covered with dirt to protect them from desecration during the War.

This is quite an old (over 450 years old) and small synagogue, located next to the old Jewish cemetery. While it's not so impressive, you could spare a couple of minutes there, while you're in the Jewish quarter.
