The House of Ashkenaze is the oldest existing synagogue in Winnipeg. Daily Orthodox Jewish services have been held here, site of a former Tabernacle Baptist Church at the intersection of Burrows Avenue and Charles Street, since 1922. The original building was destroyed by fire in April 1945 and was replaced by the present brick structure three years later.
