Piatra Neamt - Its Synagogues

We went to see the synagogues, both situated on a pretty, winding, sloping street, Str. Dr. Dimitrie Ernici. Both synagogues are fenced in. The gate was locked but we were still able to have a good look.

In 2003, just 153 Jews were living in the city and one functioning synagogue, The Temple Synagogue, existed. The wooden synagogue, the Ba’al Shem Tov, right next to it, was restored after an eight year effort, and was re-dedicated on Chanukah, December 14, 2009. It is one of the very few remaining wooden synagogues in Eastern Europe and has been classified as a historical monument.
