Kazinczy Street Synagogue

Kazinczy Street Synagogue

The city’s Orthodox Jewish congregation decided to build its own independent synagogue in 1909. Based on the designs of Sándor and Béla Löffler, the Secessionist style synagogue was completed in 1913. The façade of the synagogue which fronts onto Kazinczy Street is considered to be one of the outstanding works of Hungarian Late-Secessionist architecture.

 

The principal feature of this red-brick building, located on the bend of Kazinczy Street, is its main entrance; this is also the focal point for the religious symbols. Access, to the recently completed Sasz-Chevra Chapel, can be gained via the gateway leading into the courtyard located next to the synagogue.

The synagogue has continued to functions as such to this day. The Orthodox kosher Hanna restaurant is located in the building complex next to the synagogue.
