    The Sephardi Synagogue in Varna (1890) is a cupola building with a gallery and eclectic stylistics – neo-clasical with Moorish-Gothic elements. The exquisite neo-Gothic with Moorosh transcription frames of the windows and also of the rosette in the center of the facade above the gallery are stone work. This first so monumental and impressing Synagogue built in a newely liberated Bulgarian Kingdome was situated in the center of the town whose Jewish community was lined up on the sixth place in the country. It was declared architectural monument of culture. The Synagogue is not inhabited and it was left to selfdemolition.

      I hope and pray that the Bulgarian Jewish Community with some assistance of the Bulgarian Government restore this beautiful synagogue and return it to a vibrant house of worship for the growing Jewish community in Bulgaria and also that it can be once again a symbol of the diverse nature of the community of Varna.
