Learn about the history of the building which was constructed in 1864 amongst a complex political and cultural climate. Inspired by the model of major European cities where Jewish communities were actively promoting their cultural identity through imposing synagogues, the Choral Temple was also destined to become the highlight of all Judaic monuments in Romania. Discover more about the Jewish community of Bucharest, and Romania in general, as you walk through the Moorish-style synagogue.
