Obj. ID: 24606  Synagogue in Jánoshalma (Jankovac), Hungary

© Center for Jewish Art, Photographer: Kravtsov, Sergey, 2018.

The synagogue in Jánoshalma was built c. 1820 and reconstructed c.  1880.  A Neo-Classicist  Torah   ark flanked by two  oculi  belongs to the first building stage, while  the protruding women’s gallery, the round-headed Tablets of the Law  and  the “Lombardian”   arcade on the western façade were added during the later building  stage. The synagogue was restored by Peter Wirth in 2001. Currently (2018) it serves as a cultural center,  while all the interior appurtenances have been preserved and a community museum exists,  facilitated  by  copies  of available archival documents.
