The grand synagogue

Exploring this abandoned synagogue which was built in the beginning of the 20th century on the site of a previous synagogue. The construction of this synagogue did not go according to plan because the construction proposal was declined due to the weakness of the truss.

Miraculously this synagogue survived both WWI and WWII. The previous synagogueIt was used as a storage facility for ammunition in WWII but got damaged after bombings and later by an earthquake. In the 70’s it got demolished.

The synagogue would have been in use until 1996 but once abandoned it was completely looted and gutted. The outer doors and windows have moorish influences, from within you could see the traditional Jewish decorations.

Only three walls seemed intact and the rest has almost completely collapsed, I read that the president of the Jewish Community of Romania was examining whether restoration was still possible. However, because the synagogue had no roof, mother nature could go her own way. Plants are growing inside the synagogue with tough roots which damage the walls. I am afraid that if an emergency roof is not constructed, the synagogue will have the same fate as its predecessor. Time will tell!

I truly appreciate the time and effort my faithful readers make by visiting my website and reading my articles.

So a big shoutout to you guys, thank you so much for supporting me!
