In World War II, a large part of the Jewish population lost their lives in extermination camps. This synagogue became disused, and the building was abandoned. Reconstruction started only in the end of the 1980s. After 30 years, the Tokaj Synagogue was reborn as a Cultural and Conference Center, based on the plans of Pál Farkas.
The synagogue built in 1890 has a dome and round dormers. Another impressive local sight. The style of the building is eclectic, with some Moorish influence.
There are two stairwells on each side of the main facade of the synagogue. The building is rectangular-shaped and one-storeyed. The roof of the entrance gate is supported by two cast-iron columns, which can also be seen in the interior galleries.
Next to the large synagogue building, stands the only functioning synagogue of Hegyalja. The one-time small school house is decorated by a Star of David.
