The Coral Temple

The Coral Temple

Built in 1857, the red brick temple has a memorial in front of it (visible from the street) that commemorates the Romanian Jews sent to their deaths during the Holocaust. Usually the busiest Bucharest synagogue is now part of an extensive renovation

Great Synagogue from Bucharest

Great Synagogue from Bucharest

Was built from 1845-1846 by the Ashkenazi Polish-Jewish community. With an impressive mixture of baroque and rococo architectural styles, the Great Synagogue remains the most important Jewish building in the country. The synagogue hosts an excellent exhibition dedicated to Romania's Jewish martyrs, and to Dr. Moses Rosen, who served as Romania's Chief Rabbi for 30 years until his death in 1994.

Yeshua Tova Synagogue

Yeshua Tova Synagogue

Was built in 1827, also being called "Mogosoaia's bridge" (as a reference to Victory Avenue it lay close to). This is the oldest synagogue in the city still in service. It was modified later, being added the facade along the street, which follows the monumental triptic concept. The synagogue has thrones placed to the sides of the Chivot, meant for important guests.

State Jewish Theatre

State Jewish Theatre

Almost 130 years of history and 5 decades of activity as state institution, is the only institution of this kind. It has a distinct profile, representative for both theatric movement in Romania, but also for the contemporary landscape of scene art in Jewish language.

Optional: The Jewish Cemetery

Optional: The Jewish Cemetery

Fascinating though harrowing cemetery, full of monuments to those who died during Romania's pogroms (of which there were many at the turn of the 19th century) and the Holocaust.
