The Jewish population of the city was around 2000 members. In 1913, the Jewish community built the building on the site of a previous wooden synagogue from 1781.
After the war, the building became property of the state and was used as a storage facility. Jews from the city prayed in a room nearby. It was renovated at the end of the 70's and is now a cultural center.
