Summary

The Choral Temple (Ro. Templul Coral) is a synagogue located in Bucharest, Romania. It is a copy of Vienna's Leopoldstadt-Tempelgasse Great Synagogue, which was raised in 1855 - 1858. It was designed by Enderle and Freiwald and built between 1857 - 1867. The synagogue was devastated by the extreme right Legionaries, but was then restored after World War II, in 1945. It still hosts religious services, being one of the still active synagogues in the city and in Romania.
