Synagogues in Noord-Brabant, The Netherlands

In 1767 a Jew from the town of Oisterwijk was granted permission by the provincial parliament to settle in Tilburg, this despite the opposition of Tilburg’s town council. In 1873-1874, the community built a  synagogue on the Comediestraat, the present-day Willem II-straat.

It was not allowed for Jews to settle in the city of Eindhoven until 1772, when stadtholder Willem V summoned the city council to open its doors for Jews. In August 1940, a total of 561 Jews were counted in Eindhoven. After the invasion of the Netherlands in May 1940, only 13 Jews from Eindhoven had managed to escape to other countries. After the war, the Jewish community immediately started to reconstruct its synagogue in the Kerkstraat. Due to plans to broaden the Kerkstraat it was demolished in 1959. In 1958 a new synagogue was inaugurated in a residential home in the Hendrik Casimirstraat.
