Bucharest’s Jewish History Museum was founded in 1978 by Moses Rosen, who was the city’s chief rabbi between 1964 and 1994; it is found in the ornate Holy Union Temple synagogue, which was built in 1836 by the wealthy Jewish Tailors Guild and is in Moorish style, with layers of brickwork alternating with white plaster fronted by an extravagant rose window. Among all the gold and silver religious ephemera inside, displays detail Jewish history in Romania and mark the community’s contribution to Bucharest society. The somber memorial room at the back of the synagogue is dedicated to victims of the Holocaust, when thousands of Romanian Jews lost their lives in Transnistria. However, star prize probably goes to the startlingly colorful interior of the three-tiered, galleried synagogue, which is liberally ornamented with Byzantine and Moorish tiling, marble floors and decorative walls and ceilings.

Bucharest Jewish tour

On this tour we will present the most significant places in Bucharest that have had to do with the life of the Jews in Romania. In the 19th century about 10% of Romania's pollution was Jewish. Most Jews lived in big cities like Bucharest. They positively influenced the life of the community and left behind monuments of inestimable value such as temples. Unfortunately, 20th-century politics caused the Jewish community to leave Romania with or without their will.
