This complex is functioning as a centre of the Hungarian orthodox community. The building is an exception to the rule: the former Jewish quarter is characterised by organic unity, avoidance of grandiose architectural gestures and labyrinth of spontaneous spaces, connections, created by Löffler Bros of Budapest. Kazinczy Synagogue recalls the atmosphere of 18-19th century Shtetls. The complex includes the full establishment for a jewish community: synagogue, beit midrash, rabbi-flat, school, offices, restaurant and kitchen. School was built in 1911, hall in 1912 and the synagogue at Rosh Hasana in 1913.
Since the death of Reich Jakov Koppel in 1929, his chair had no longer used by the next leaders. He was the orthodox chief rabbi in Budapest from 1890 to his death.
