Belfort Synagogue

The Belfort Synagogue is a synagogue built in the Byzantine Revival architecture during the Second French Empire in the city center of Belfort, France.

The building was erected in 1857 and was put on the list of National heritage site in October 1983.[1]

The Jewish community exists in the town since the 13th century. Today the synagogue is active although the Jewish community is very small.

An old Jewish cemetery from 1811 still exists today.
