The new Bornplatz Synagogue is coming.

The new Bornplatz Synagogue building is a hopeful symbol of the future for Jewish life in Germany. At the same time, it stands as a memorial to the original Bornplatz Synagogue looted and destroyed during the night of the progrom.

Since more than 100,000 signatures have been collected from supporters for the Bornplatz Synagogue in Hamburg, it is clear that the synagogue will be the work of citizens of this city, in the middle of this city and for this city.

The new Bornplatz Synagogue is intended to be a place of religion, education, remembrance and encounter. It will stand as a landmark for the cosmopolitanism and Jewish identity of our city.
