The erstwhile Jewish community centre, built at Mittelgasse 16 in 1845-46, is architecturally accented by Roman arches.
The synagogue adjoined the building to the east; the western section included a classroom at street level, the residence of the school teacher and cantor on the floor above.
A ritual bath house was situated on the south side of the synagogue's yard.
Following its restoration from 1985 to 1987, the synagogue building is now used for lectures, concerts and other cultural purposes.
More than 300 years old, the cemetery is situated east of town in a romantic forested setting.
Jews from neighbouring locales are also buried there.
