With only about 4,000 members of the Jewish community left in Bucharest today, it is rather difficult to imagine that in 1930 it represented up to 11% of the entire city’s population. The Jewish quarter was severely affected by the Fascist pogrom in the 40s, followed by the demolitions initiated in the 80s by the communists, with most streets simply wiped out and 6 synagogues and Jewish temples demolished. Nevertheless, some emblematic buildings have survived and are here to tell   their stories.  

THE  TOUR  INCLUDES :         

–    The CHORAL TEMPLE   ( interior  visit )

the main synagogue / best known monument of Jewish heritage in Bucharest

It was built in Moorish style between 1864-1866. The Leopolstädter Temple, once the greatest synagogue of Vienna, which was destroyed during the Kristallnacht on November, 10th 1938, served as a model for the Choral Temple.

  • The GREAT POLISH SYNAGOGUE ( interior  visit )    which houses the Holocaust Museum
  • The historical monument constructed in 1845 features beautiful decorations and an exhibition about the Holocaust in Romania.
  • The HOLY UNION TEMPLE ( interior visit )    which  houses  the Jewish History Museum
  • The museum covers the history of Jews in Romania, including a small collection of paintings by Romanian Jewish painters and a collection of ritual Jewish objects.
  • The JEWISH  STATE  THEATRE  – founded some 140 years ago as a theatre. You will see  the theater (exterior ) and hear the story of this great cultural institution.
