The Worms Synagogue, also known as Rashi Shul, is an 11th century synagogue located in Worms, Germany. History
The first synagogue at the site was built in 1034 and is therefore regarded as the oldest existing synagogue in Germany. The building was first destroyed during the First Crusade in 1096 and subsequently rebuilt in 1175 in the Romanesque style. In 1186 southwest of the synagogue a subterranean mikveh was constructed.
During the pogroms of 1349 and 1615 the synagogue was badly damaged:
in both pogroms the vaulted ceilings and the walls were heavily damaged.
During reconstruction after 1355 Gothic forms for the window and the
vault chosen. Comparable seriousness was the damage after the fire of
1689 during the Nine Years' War. When the building was restored in 1700, the interior was renovated in period style.
in 1938 the synagogue was once again attacked and reduced to rubble. It
was painstakingly reconstructed in 1961, using as many of the original
stones that could be salvaged. The synagogue, open as a museum, continues to be a functioning synagogue used by the Jewish community.
In May 2010, the synagogue was firebombed by arsonists, suspected to be anti-Zionists.
The firebombs were thrown against eight corners of the stone building
and against a window, but no one was injured and no serious damage to
the building was reported.
Built at the point when late Romanesque style was fading and Gothic
rising, the rectangular prayer hall features a pair of Romanesque
columns supporting groin vaults. The windows in the thick stone walls
are simple gothic arches. The windows in the adjoining study hall, the
so called Rashi Shul,
have rounded Romanesque arches. The womenâs section of the prayer hall
has Romanesque windows in the Eastern wall, and gothic windows in the
