The history of the Minsk Choral Synagogue goes back to 1901. The initiator of the construction was the famous Minsk doctor – Joseph Lunts. The place for it was chosen next to a Jewish four-year school and a train station on Serpukhovskaya Street. Later, in 1922, it was renamed Volodarskiy Street, and in the future the synagogue would become one of the national theaters of the Republic of Belarus.
