Renovation of the long-abandoned synagogue in Kőszeg, has finally begun thanks to the Creative City Sustainable Region Project by iASK

The work represents the first phase of a larger plan that foresees the restoration of the entire synagogue complex, including the Rabbi’s house, courtyard, garden, and fence. Work on the synagogue is expected to be completed by the second half of 2021, while the Rabbi’s house should be completed by spring 2022.

The restoration is being carried out by the company VM Construction Fővállalkozó Kft, within the framework of the KRAFT program, working to plans by the architecture firm Tripartitum Építész Műhely Kft. KRAFT is a regional development program that includes economic, municipal, and academic actors that work together for the development of small and medium-sized cities. The Kőszeg-based Institute for Advanced Studies (iASK) coordinates activities in its KRAFT center.
