English description
Jews began settling in Ada in the late 18th century. The cemetery also dates back to this period. The first prayer house was opened in the first half of the 19th century. By the end of the 19th century, the community of about 400 members, was based on the Orthodox model. Construction of the new synagogue building was completed in 1896. In Ada functioned also a Jewish school. The community renewed its work after World War II only shortly, until 51 surviving members immigrated to Israel in 1948. The synagogue was destroyed in 1973. A memorial plaque was unveiled in 1994 at the site where the synagogue once stood, at 8a Lenjinova Street. The inscription on the plaque does not mention either the vanished Jewish community, the Holocaust or the suffering of the Jews during World War II.
