The Great Synagogue in Dubno is one of the most interesting Jewish monuments in Volyn and Ukraine. The building is a prime example of synagogue construction in the XVIII century using stylistic elements of the Renaissance and early classicism.
The synagogue building, which has survived to the present day, was built in 1782-1794 in the Baroque style on the site of an older synagogue of the 16th century. The construction of the synagogue was carried out with the assistance of the owner of the city of Dubno and the patron of the arts Prince Mykhailo Lubomyrsky. From the day the synagogue was founded, there was a choir that performed the best compositions of the Jewish liturgy.
During World War I, the synagogue was partially destroyed during hostilities and rebuilt in the 1930s. After the Second World War, the premises were used as a warehouse. Along with the construction of the synagogue, the Germans built a Jewish ghetto. In Soviet times, the building was adapted for VSAAAN (Voluntary Society for Assistance to the Army, Aviation, Navy). In the 1980s, the shrine was used as a production base for restoration workshops.
The building is currently in a state of disrepair and is not used for its intended purpose in the absence of the Jewish community
