Jewish sites today -

Images: 

This website tells you more about current Jewish life in Vienna.

Although our Jewish community in Vienna is rather small (7,000 members), we have one of the liveliest and best organized communities in Europe, with three schools, several Jewish youth clubs, around eight synagogues, a Jewish old age home and all sorts of cultural and social clubs. We also have the most awesome sports club and hall in Europe with a great Maccabi team!

The Jewish sites today -The Seitenstetten-Tempel

Images: 

For our history class project, we researched the history of the oldest Synagogue in Vienna, the Seitenstetten-Tempel in the first district. Below are some photos of the synagogue. 

The so called Stadttempel in the Seitenstettengasse 4, 1010 Vienna, is Vienna’s main and oldest Synagogue. It was built in the years 1824- 1826 in a Neo-Classical style after the plans of the well known Austrian Architect J. Kornhäusel (1). It was officially opened on the 9th of April 1826 and the first Rabbi of the Stadttempel was Isak Noa Mannheimer.

An interview with Ruth Neuberger

Images: 

For a history class project, we looked into the school archives to find former Jewish pupils who were expelled from our school in 1938. On the right, you can find a document of all the former pupils´ names we found, and an interview with one of them

 
We built up a connection with a former Jewish pupil from our school, which was quite difficult because we just had her e-mail address. Today she lives in Tel-Aviv, a city in Israel and she is over 90 years old.
