A building that was built as a synagogue.
Use building=synagogue for a Jewish house of prayer.
How to map
Draw an area along building outline. Tag it with building=synagogue.
Set a node at the center of the building if mapping as area is impossible.
Place actively used as synagogue, with Jewish religious ceremonies is tagged as amenity=place_of_worship + religion=jewish.
Tags to use in combination
- name=* (or noname=yes if it has no name)
- building:use=* especially if building is no longer used as a synagogue
Note that OSM Carto renders building=synagogue like other buildings. Special rendering is caused here by amenity=place_of_worship + religion=jewish indicating place actively used for Jewish religious ceremonies.
The whole area or campus, containing the synagogue, grave yard, buildings for staff residence or education, bell towers, workshops, etc. can be tagged landuse=religious + religion=jewish.
