The first Jew families settled in Brasov in 1807 with the consent of the town council. They numbered 769 in 1890, while at the end of the last century there were around 6000 Jews. During WW the Jews were safe in Brasov, they were not sent to death camps, though many of them were despised, excluded from commercial life, children were banned from schools, and in 1941 the synagogue was robbed. Though, at the beginning the Jews in Brasov got the jobs that the Saxons did not want: they worked as hatmakers, tailors, painters, goldsmiths.
They played an important role in the economic, commercial and cultural life of the town. The highbrows became entrepreneurs, architects, factory-, and newspaper owners . . .and just how small the world is, the wife of Ariel Sharon, the Israeli minister of foreign affairs, is from Brasov. The three-nave synagogue in Black street was built in 1901 in Spanish style and was renovated on its centenary.
