Agoudas Hakehilos Synagogue

The Agoudas Hakehilos Synagogue (讗植讙只讚指旨转志讛址拽职旨讛执诇旨讜止转, Union of the communities), at 10 rue Pav茅e, in the 4th arrondissement of Paris (Le Marais quarter), commonly referred to at the Pav茅e synagogue, rue Pav茅e synagogue, or Guimard synagogue, was designed by Art Nouveau architect Hector Guimard and erected between 1913 and 1914.

The synagogue was commissioned by the Agoudas Hakehilos (讗植讙只讚指旨转志讛址拽职旨讛执诇旨讜止转, union of the communities), society composed of Orthodox Jews of primarily Russian origin, headed by Joseph Landau. Its erection is a testament to the massive wave of immigration from Eastern Europe that took place at the turn of the 20th century. Funded by this wealthy Polish-Russian group it did not cost the Parisian community a centime. They intended to provide a spacious and modernized place for Jews accustomed to the intimate and often squalid shtiblakh.
