The Neologue Tsion Synagogue - Oradea  Romania

On the shores of the Black Sea the Jews wrote in Romania, a nuanced and plural history. Over the centuries, successive sovereignties, shifting borders, Jewish communities from all over Europe found themselves in Romania which was part of Hungary and Wallachia. They each bring a part of the cultural heritage that the country still enjoys today. Land of welcome, land of exile, Romania is now the guardian of a past Jewish life, punctuated by the dialects and praise of a population that was reduced to silence. Very present in Central Europe, neologous Judaism is a Hungarian branch of progressive Judaism.
