Located in a particularly beautiful area of Romania. If you travel there, go to Iași as a must of the area, perhaps the most beautiful and most typical town in Romania. Look for the library of the Technical Faculty, you will not regret.

The old Synagogue is an amazing extremely emotional place to visit. The atmosphere is holy and there is a smell of very old books - including the Torah in “Aron Hakodesh”. We received a very good explanation of the history of this important place. Unfortunately, there is almost no prayers in the Synagogue....

I was in Romania with my children for a "roots" visit and going through Piatra Neamt, we decided to visit this historic synagogue. The old part part was restored and a new built next to it. As their permit to restore was that the building not be higher than the houses around, the restoration dug to a depth of 2 metres to maintain the authentic size of the original structure. It was a very moving visit and our pictures to the site will describe the site

Wooden Synagogue from Piatra Neamt was built in 1766 and it is a monument with a long and controversial history, being testimony of numerous Jewish communities that lived in this city since the Middle Ages. Synagogue of Piatra Neamt is constructed of thick beams coated both inside and outside. Because of the high stone foundation, entering the building is done using the descending staircase. The interior is presented as a closed two-story gallery to the north and one floor on the west side, where women’s synagogue is; in the south there is another smaller gallery for children. The Baal Shem Tov synagogue is the only wooden synagogue in Eastern Europe, which was kept intact with all its symbolic , religious, legendary and architectural value.

We visited this Synagogue during the Jewish religious High Holiday, (Sukkot), and it was one of the sensitive visits we had in our trip. The place offers you a look into the hart of the Jewish community of Eastern Europe, and especially to one of the famous Rabbi of that era. There are many religious items that were carefully kept and we also got an explanation from the local contact person there. This place is also known as the 'wooden synagogue' and a must place to visit for everyone.
