Österreichisches Jüdisches Museum information
Situated in the former Judengasse (the street where Eisenstadt’s Jewish population mostly lived in the Middle Ages), this museum has a permanent exhibition illustrating the rituals and lifestyle of Eisenstadt’s Jews. Descriptions are in German and Hebrew. Part of the museum is the historic private synagogue of Samson Wertheimer, who was born in Worms in Germany in 1658 and rose to the position of rabbi in Hungary. He financed the synagogue, and it was one of the few to survive the pogroms of 1938.
