Jewish Architecture Synagogue in Pannonhalma, Hungary
The synagogue was built – according to Aniko Gazda – in 1882. However, the possibility of dating it to the first half of the nineteenth should be considered. The recently reconstructed building has become important as the venue of the traditional harvest feasts and it has been used for concerts and exhibitions as well as being a venue for events of the Pro Patria days. In Pannonhalma, the synagogue at the foot of the one thousand year old abbey tries to be “a holy place of reconciliation.” A monument to the destroyed Jewish culture (in the form of an entrance to an ancient synagogue in Galilee) was built in front of its eastern façade.
