Descriptif de la Synagogue de La Chaux-de-Fonds (Suisse).
Elle a été inaugurée le 13 mai 1896 (1er sivan 5656, année hébraïque) soit 22 mois après la pose de la pierre angulaire.) A cette date il y avait 825 Israélites à La Chaux-de-Fonds et 250 au 1er janvier 1983.
Cet édifice a été conçu sur les plans de M. Kuder architecte à Strasbourg et inspiré par la synagogue construite dans cette dernière ville et détruite par les n***s. Elle est de style roman. Trois façades donnent sur trois rues différentes, dont la principale sur un passage aménagé en jardin public, agrémenté d’une fontaine et de bancs. Elle est construite en pierre de taille.
Du centre du monument s’élève une coupole à tambour octogonal portant 24 fenêtres, et couverte de tuiles polychromes. Le sommet est à 32 mètres.
Sur l’entrée principale, on lit sur le frontispice, les paroles du credo: »Ecoute Israël, l’Eternel est notre D., l’Eternel est Un. » La façade est couronnée par les deux Tables de la Loi.
La décoration est achevée par les arcs peints sur fond or avec l’inscription de la sentence hébraïque: « La crainte du Seigneur est le commencement de la sagesse. »
Sur la façade principale se détachent deux tourelles de chaque côté contenant les escaliers qui conduisent aux galeries réservées aux dames.

The Klezmatics at Symphony Space – Sun, Dec 5
Terry Dale, President & CEO, USTOA
at first-ever Malta/Israel Joint Promotion in the US said
“The Two Mediterranean Destinations Present
a Unique but Natural Travel Combination”
The first ever joint promotion of the Malta Tourism Authority and the Israel Ministry of Tourism in North America was held recently at the Park East Synagogue in New York City. H.E. Keith Azzopardi, Malta’s Ambassador to the US in Washington and H.E. Vanessa Frazier, Malta’s Representative to the UN in New York, co hosts of the event both gave welcome remarks. This Malta Israel event was organized under the auspices of the Culture Diplomacy Fund of Malta’s Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs.
Terry Dale, President & CEO, United States Tour Operators Association (USTOA) was featured speaker along with Michelle Buttigieg, Representative North America, Malta Tourism Authority, Eyal Carlin, Director General Israel Ministry of Tourism (IMOT) North America and Chad Martin, Director North East Region, IMOT.
Terry Dale, in his remarks, noted “both Malta and Israel have a lot in common. They share the Mediterranean Sea, similar cuisines, diversity and of course rich in history, archaeology and attract religious pilgrimages. Their cultures both reflect the rich mosaic of people that make up their population. Yet despite their similarities, they each have such a unique heritage and flavor that they make this a unique two destination experience.”
Now, with direct flights from Tel Aviv/Malta (only a 2 ½ hour flight) , resuming, it is very easy to combine both Malta and Israel and makes a very attractive combination and add on in either direction.
Michelle Buttigieg spoke about the Jewish Heritage Malta program which was developed and recently launched. Buttigieg said “so few people know that there is a Jewish Community in Malta and that Jewish history in Malta dates back to the time of the Phoenicans. This special program enables visitors to Malta, to be able to locate and identify points of Jewish interest as well as to enable them to connect with the small but vibrant local Maltese Jewish community.”
Chad Martin noted, “Few may know of Malta’s rich Jewish history, just as others often forget that in addition to being the Holy Land, Israel is also a Mediterranean destination with a rich diversity of cultures both historically and presently. By working together we help to remind, inform and, of course, motivate travelers to visit both destinations." He also spoke about the need to rethink heritage travel through the prism of today’s leading travel interests such as green tourism and support for local communities, both key sustainability goals.
Yoram Elgrabli, VP, North and Central America, El Al Israel Airlines, also present at the event, provided a door prize of a roundtrip ticket to Tel Aviv on behalf of El Al.
