Fabric Synagogue, Timisoara

Fabric Synagogue, Timisoara

The Fabric New Synagogue is a Neologue synagogue in the Fabric quarter of the Romanian city of Timisoara, in the region of Banat. It was built when Timisoara was part of Transylvania and was integrated in the Austro-Hungarian Empire. The style is Neo-Moorish; it remains one of the most impressive buildings in the city. On September 3, 1889, the building we see today was inaugurated. Its construction was made possible by the contributions of donors, recruited by the head of the community, Alex Kohn. The building was designed by the well-known Hungarian architect Lipot Baumhorn, based in Budapest, and the construction itself was under the direction of local contractor Josef Kremmer. The synagogue's organ was built by a local master, Leopold Wegenstein. The reputation of the women's choir survives to this day.
