The Zabłudów Synagogue, built ca. 1637, is considered to be one of the oldest wooden synagogues to have survived into the modern period. Poland and Lithuania were once the home of hundreds of synagogues of this type, ranging from simple constructions to elaborate and majestic buildings such as the one in Zabłudów. Only a few examples of this distinctive Jewish architecture still survive today in Eastern Europe. The Zabłudów Synagogue was destroyed by German Nazis in 1941.
