In its permanent exhibition, “Open ye the Gates,” the New Synagogue Berlin – Centrum Judaicum Foundation traces the history of the building and the life associated with it.

Most of the objects that tell the history of the building have been destroyed. But some architectural fragments and parts of the interior furnishings were discovered during the work that was done to secure the building before the reconstruction of the remaining historical structure. They form the core of the exhibition

The documents and exhibits convey an impression of the diverse forms of Jewish life in this section of Berlin. The open space behind the restored building sections testifies to the vast size of the former main synagogue room. The exhibits can be viewed either with a guided tour or an audio guide. The former inner wall and the remaining brickwork that are part of the original synagogue are protected by a construction made of glass and steel. The floor plan of the former synagogue, indicated by granite blocks, shows the dimension of the destroyed section. Thus the scars caused by history remain visible.
