Synagogue Project

Beregszász Synagogue

Work is in full swing restoring the Beregszász Jewish community synagogue, located at Zrinyi Street. We are very grateful for a donation towards this project by the Hungarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Ernő Goldberger, president of the Jewish community in Beregszász said: "the old tin roof and roof rafters must be replaced, as well as repairs to the interior of the sanctuary, for example: plaster is crumbling and in many places, the plaster has fallen off of the wall."

The goal is to regain the original image of the small synagogue after its renovation.

Pictured in front of the synagogue are representatives of the Beregszász Jewish community and the Hungarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
