Daugavpils Synagogue Restored

The family of world-renowned artist Mark Rothko funded the restoration of a synagogue in the artist’s hometown of Daugavplis through the Commission. The synagogue is one of only two still functioning in the country, and the only one left in Daugavpils out of some 70 prior to World War II. Rothko immigrated to the United States in the early 1900’s with his parents.
