Luogo - Religious building


Where Via Graziadio Isaia Ascoli, 19, Gorizia

The Synagogue, of Ashkenazi rite, was sbuilt in 1756 in the old ghetto. The current access, a double-arched entrance with wooden portals, surmounted by the tables of the law and an eight-pointed star, is the result of the restructuring of 1894, work of Emilio Luzzatto. The courtyard houses a menorah donated by the sculptor Simon Benetton and a plaque in memory of the deportees from Gorizia on November 23, 1943. The ground floor houses the Jewish Museum "Jerusalem on the Isonzo River", which illustrates the history of the people of Israel from Biblical times to the diaspora, through descriptions of rituals and traditions (with a section dedicated to the Jews of the city and the deportation of famous people); while the temple itself is located on the first floor: the hall, with a women's gallery wooden balcony, is lit by large windows and two wrought iron chandeliers. The tabernacle, in Baroque style, is surrounded by a eighteenth century wrought-iron balustrade. The bimah, the raised wooden pulpit, the lectern and four large chandeliers complete the decor.
