The synagogue from Cetate district, of a Mosaic style, was built amid 1863-65 on initiative of the Rabbi Mauriciu Hirschfeld; it was planned by the Viennese architect Ignatz Schuhmann in eclectic and Moorish style. In the Inter-War period, there were almost 13 000 Jews in Timișoara, today there are around 700. The balconies and the ground-floor space can host 3 000 people.
The edifice had two official inaugurations, at the second one, from 1872, participated King Franz Josef I. as well. The façade is plated with face brick and ceramics plate. The building has two towers and a dome. In the interior there is a Wegenstein organ (1866). Here is buried rabbi David Opelheim. In 1985 the synagogue was closed because of the decline in number of the Jew population. In the following 20 years, the edifice bore the consequences of its neglecting and vandalism. In 2001 the Philharmonic Orchestra signed a lending contract for 50 years with the Jew community.
In exchange of using the synagogue as a concert-room, it will support the renovation expenses of the building. Thus, the place will change into a multifunctional space, with conference and exposition rooms.
