One of 110 Synagogues before the Holocaust, it is the only survivor of the Holocaust and one of two Synagogues now in Iasi. It is also the oldest surviving Synagogue in all of Romania. The area once had many Synagogues and Jewish homes before WWII and the Pogrom.

Built in 1671 and on the National Register of Historic places, it consists of two wings with round arched windows.

On the grounds in one of my pictures is the Monument to the Victims of the Iasi Pogrom. Other pictures are of the Jewish cemetery where many of the Pogrom victims were buried.

The Jewish cemetery has great importance for everyone Jewish or not. The Romanian people don’t mention it since most young people are not aware of their ancestors’ crimes in 1941. However, this cemetery is an open air museum which presents the graveyard of the Jewish progrom’s victims very accurately as it happened in history. Most Jews in iasi were killed in the death trains who took them for days of ride with no food or oxygen until they died. The victims were thrown into halls they were digging for themselves. The cemetery is in pacurari area

The historic Jewish synagogue is of great importance and must to see. Visit should be coordinated in advance and worth visiting. The synagogue is impressive and a very exciting and touching place for all our people!

At one time the Jewish Community in Iasi made up nearly half the city's population. Now there are only a couple of hundred Jews left. The Great Synagogue - Sinagoga Mare - is currently under renovation. But there is a smaller synagogue nearby with a small Jewish museum well worth visiting.

By the time we visited the site went a major reconstruction but the workers showed us a photo of all the artifacts and furniture that underwent a major facelift - the synagogue will be reopened in the fall

The Great Synagogue in Iasi was built back in 1671. During its existence it has undergone major renovations several times. Included in the list of historical monuments of Romania.
