Built in 1845-'47 by the Ashkenazi Polish-Jewish community, the Great Synagogue in Bucharest is one of the most important Jewish buildings in Romania.

It presents exhibitions on 'The Memorial of Jewish Martyrs' which explores Jewish history in Romania showcasing the discrimination and pogroms the community faced, and on Moses Rosen who was Romania's Chief Rabbi for 30 years until his death in 1994.
