The Neologist Synagogue

Cluj-Napoca was one of the important centers of the Jewish community in Southeast Europe until the Second World War. The neolog synagogue is one of the symbols reminiscent of the former glory of this community. It was built between 1886 and 1887, the facade and the four towers highlighting the Moorish architectural style in which it was built.

Damaged during the interwar period and during the Second World War, it was rebuilt, and two commemorative plaques were installed outside. Also known as the “Temple of the Deportees”, the neolog synagogue is the place of worship dedicated to the memory of the deported Jews during the tragic events of World War II.
