The synagogue in ,Wołpa is regarded as one of the most beautiful wooden synagogues. Thomas C. Ubka called it "masterwork" of wooden architecture".[1.1] Furthermore, it is said, that the synagogue had a opulent interior decoration.
 

The synagogue was probably build in the first half of the 17th century. It is also verified that the roof of the synagogue was renovated in 1781.[1.2]

During the Second World War the Germans burned it down.
