Turnov Synagogue

DSC 7618

The Turnov Synagogue dates back to 1719. It was built as a stone building on the corner section of the Jewish Quarter. Today it is inside a block of houses. The first three wooden synagogues which we know about from historical sources burnt down during the fires in the town in 1643 and 1707.
The first written references to the Turnov Jewish community date back to 1527.

Jewish cemetery

Židovský hřbitov v Turnově

The Jewish cemetery in Turnov dates back to the 17th century. The land for a Jewish cemetery was purchased by Albrecht of Wallenstein as early as in 1625 and the oldest surviving tombstone goes back to 1649. During its existence, it was expanded twice. The last burial took place here in 1956. At present, there is a bridge of the motorway passing through the town in the direction of Jičín over a part of the cemetery, which was planned in the late seventies and was constructed in 1987-91. Since 1994, the cemetery has been administered by Matana, a joint-stock company founded by the Federation of Jewish Communities for the purpose of caring for real estate.
