The red brick portion was a Misnagdim Synagogue.  The Great Synagogue was used as the Culture House during the Soviet period.  The Misnagdim portion is now used as a boiler room for heating the main building which now contains the Public Library and Wall of Memory Holocaust Memorial erected on July 13, 2004.  The photo was taken in 1983.
