The Synagogue, Novi Sad
(4.3/5 based on 50+ reviews on the web)
Novi Sad Synagogue is one of many cultural institutions in Novi Sad, Serbia, in the capital of Serbian the province of Vojvodina. Located on Jevrejska Street, in the city center, the synagogue has been recognized as a historic landmark. It served the local Neolog congregation.The new synagogue, the fifth to be erected at the same location since the 18th century, became a major project for the entire Jewish community of Novi Sad, on which construction began in 1905 and was completed in 1909. Projected by Hungarian architect Baumhorn Lipót, it was part of a bigger complex of buildings that included on both sides of the synagogue two edifices decorated in a similar pattern: One building served as the Jewish school and other as offices of the Jewish community.More than 4,000 Jews lived in Novi Sad before the Second World War, out of a total population of 80,000. Only about 1,000 of them survived the Holocaust that followed the German invasion of Yugoslavia in 1941 and the annexation of Bačka region by Hungary. Many moved to Israel after the war. There are an estimated 400 Jews living in Novi Sad today. Currently, while the synagogue is not used for religious ceremonies, it is used for many cultural concerts and events.In 1991 Novi Sad Synagogue was added to Spatial Cultural-Historical Units of Great Importance list, and it is protected by Republic of Serbia.

  • This is one of my favorite buildings in Novi Sad. Every time I go to Novi Sad, I simply have to see this beauty. If you go in the courtyard, you can actually use it as a passage to streets behind. 
  • Možda vas naslov malo zbunjuje, ali Sinagoga je postala mesto gde se izvode značajne muzičke svečanosti, pre svega zbog svoje izuzetne akustike. Naravno da ne treba zaboraviti i na samu građevinu, ali...  more »
