Seta Beit HaMidrash

The Beit HaMidrash (house of study) in Seta was part of a larger building complex including a synagogue to its left. Unfortunately the Seta synagogue was destroyed and only the Beit HaMidrash is still standing. It is in a dilapidated condition, is all boarded up and entry is not possible. The Beit HaMidrash and the Seta Jewish Cemetery now devoid of its tombstones are sadly the only remaining vestiges of Seta's illustrious Jewish past.

Arrow pointing to location of the synagogue/Beit HaMidrash complex. It is only approximate, as it should be a little more to the west of the intersection of the North-South and the East-West street.

The location of the synagogue symbol on the Karte des Westlichen Russlands map could be #133 on the 1922 list of Seta property owners. The symbol could have marked the location of a prior synagogue, which could have been there prior to World War I and carried through on newer maps which failed to note the new location.
