This chapter presents updated information on the Old Town Synagogue in Łódź. It reveals new inter-war files which contain extremely important references to the history of the synagogue in the old town on Wolborska Street. In addition to a less interesting, undated blueprint for a synagogue at Północna Street, a large file bearing the call number 457 and described in Russian as ‘Plany sinagogi’ (Blueprint for the Synagogue) contained architectural drawings of the utmost importance. These are: the design for the renovation of the Wolborska Street synagogue, dated 1895; an inventory drawing of the building from 1894; and a plan for renovations to a smaller prayer house on Wolborska Street — all done by the well-known Łódź architect Adolf Zeligson. The first two items greatly expand our knowledge of the Old Town Synagogue, which served as the main prayer house for the Jewish community of Łódź.

Keywords:   Łódź, Old Town Synagogue, Adolf Zeligson, Wolborska Street synagogue, architectural drawings, architectural history, prayer house
