A tiny room of worship, this memorial was created and funded by the descendant of the Szántó family. The city of Szentendre had a small Jewish community before ww2, -it even had an elementary shool-.

We took a day trip to Szentendre and visited this synagogue. The lady who oversees it was very eager to give us an explanation. Only problem was she only spoken Hungarian. It is nicr a museum of the Jewish past the area had.

This Memorial Home is dedicated to the remembrance of the family who created it and some of whom were transported to the death camps in 1944. There are interesting photographs of the family in addition to artifacts. You can sit and read from the prayer books, view the Arc containing two Torahs, one of which is Kosher. A must visit.
