Folkingestraat Synagogue Foundation
Who are we?

In 1975, the Folkingestraat Synagogue Foundation was established to save the striking building from the demolition hammer. Since 1981, the Foundation has taken care of the cultural agenda of Synagogue Groningen. The Foundation has been designated as aPublic Benefit Institution

Mission: what do we do?

Our mission is to keep the Jewish heritage alive in the city and province of Groningen for current and future generations. From Synagogue Groningen we tell the story of Jewish cultural and social life to this day. We do this by opening up Synagogue Groningen for cultural and educational activities. 

Organization structure

Synagogue Groningen is a small, but very dynamic organization. The director manages the organization on behalf of the foundation board. Thanks to the efforts of many volunteers, Synagogue Groningen offers ample visiting opportunities and many activities can be organized.

Volunteering in Synagogue Groningen

In order to be able to continue to offer our many activities, we are looking for reinforcements for our volunteer team. We are looking for new colleagues as desk clerks and guides in Synagogue Groningen. Rest assured: no prior knowledge is required. An open attitude and a dose of enthusiasm are just as important! Would you like to help tell the Jewish story of Groningen by opening up our Synagogue as a desk employee or by learning to provide information as a guide? Then we would like to get in touch with you!

Internship in Synagogue Groningen

Synagogue Groningen offers 1 or 2 internships every year. In recent years, we offered internship assignments for students from NHL-Stenden, Hanze University of Applied Sciences and the University of Groningen, among others, with study options such as KCM, Pedagogical Sciences, (Art) History, Religious Studies and Middle East Studies.

The internship positions have been filled for the academic year 2023/2024.
