The Újpest Synagogue is a Neolog Judaism synagogue in Újpest (New Pest), a district of Budapest, Hungary. The Romantic-style edifice was built in 1866 and holds 1,000 seats. Rabbi Sander Rosenberg from Arad officiated at the opening ceremony. Its establishment was a "great holiday" for the Jews and Christians of Újpest. It lies in Attila József street about five minutes from Újpest-Városkapu metro station.
During World War II, the synagogue was looted and partially destroyed by the Nazis. After the war the synagogue was rebuilt and a Holocaust memorial was added next to the synagogue. The memorial, which was unveiled by Hungarian President Zoltán Tildy, is a wall with names of the 17,000 Jewish Ujpest residents that were victims of the Holocaust.
