Trondheim Synagogue

The Trondheim Synagogue (Norwegian: Synagogen i Trondheim) in Trondheim, Norway is the second-northernmost synagogue in the world (after the synagogue in Fairbanks, Alaska). The present synagogue has served the Jewish community since its inauguration on October 13, 1925. It was built to replace the first synagogue in Trondheim, the St Jørgensveita Synagogue which was opened in 1899.

Trondheim's synagogue claims to be the world's northernmost. It has a small museum dedicated to the history of the local Jewish community, which was decimated by the Holocaust. Admission is by guided tour. For those with a deeper interest, an information board and map outside shows sites around town with historic links to Trondheim's Jewish community.
