New Synagogue, Düsseldorf
The New Synagogue (Template:Lang-de) is the only synagogue of the Jewish community in Düsseldorf, Germany. The synagogue was built in the Golzheim district, far from the site of the former synagogue, which was located in the city center at Kasernenstraße. There the synagogue was pillaged and burned by SA men during the Kristallnacht in 1936.
The synagogue is named after rabbi Leo Baeck, who served as a pulpit rabbi in Düsseldorf. On 3 October 2000, the synagogue was firebombed. Since then, there is a constant police watch over the synagogue.
