About us

Forum Alte Synagoge Mühlhausen e. V. (Forum Old Synagogue Muehlhausen) is a registered non-profit organisation founded in autumn 2018 with the aim to purchase the former synagogue in Muehlhausen (Middle Franconia), to renovate the building and to remodel it into a memorial and educational facility as well as into a place for cultural events.

We are a group of inhabitants of Muehlhausen interested in history as well as members and friends of the Jewish community Erlangen and people from the surrounding area for whom the Jewish past of our region is an important matter.

We continue the work of deceased Johann Fleischmann who, for decades, made an outstanding contribution to exploration and documentation of the history of the Jewish rural communities along the rivers Aisch, Aurach, Ebrach and Seebach.
