Complete description of site

The Clermont-Ferrand synagogue, which opened in 1862, was too old and closed and was sold in 1963. A new synagogue opened in Rue Blatin.

After being purchased in 1990, the building was registered as a regional historical monument in 2006, and was re-inaugurated in 2013.

It was consecrated to the memory of the Righteous Among the Nations in Auvergne, and became the headquarters of the Jules Isaac Cultural Center, an association organized to provide information about Jewish history, memory, heritage and culture. The Center’s activities are centered on memory, citizenship, art and culture. Lectures, exhibits, and concerts are organized in the center, which is open to the public as well as being a learning center for students and teachers, offering teaching workshops in connection with secondary school syllabi.
