Synagogue in Bergstien
The 1940-45 Nazi occupation all but exterminated the Jews living in Oslo, but for some mysterious reason this synagogue survived. It is still the only one in the city, and with the next-door Community House (at no. 13) it is unchallenged as the center of Hebraic community life in Oslo. Synagogues have no architectural style of their own, but rather tend to resemble each country's own religious buildings; so you have to look twice to tell it is not a church. The foundation stone was laid down in 1918, and the architect, Herman Herzog, had it ready for Hanukkah in December of the following year. In 1920 it was consecrated by Rabbi Marcus Melchior from Copenhagen. Prayers are said in Hebrew.
