The Beis Aharon V'Yisrael Synagogue, also known as Tzorei Gilad Synagogue, at Bratya Mikhnovskye (formerly Moskovskaya) Street in Lviv, Ukraine is the only functioning Jewish Orthodox synagogue in Lviv.


The Aharon ve Yisrael is one of only two Jewish temples in Lviv to have survived the World War II. There were nearly fifty before the Nazi occupation.

Originally built in 1925, the synagogue was designed by Albert Kornbluth in the Baroque style. The construction was financed by Jewish charity "Tzorei Gilad", and was designed to accomidate 384 worshipers.

The building managed to survive the war as the Nazis used it as a horse stable. After 1945, under the Soviet regime, the synagogue was used as a warehouse. In 1989 the building was returned to the Jewish community. It was renovated from 1995 to 1997, and again from 1999 to 2000 it underwent a major interior renovation under the direction of architect Aron Ostreicher. Today, "Beit Aharon ve Yisrael" synagogue is the only operating synagogue in Lviv. Services are conducted by the Chief Rabbi of Lviv and West Ukraine Mordechai Shlomo Bald, a Karlin-Stolin hasid.
