In 1851, Orthodox Jews created their own congregation in Frankfurt/M. under the leadership of Rabbi Samson Raphael Hirsch (1808-1888), in opposition to liberal mainstream Judaism. A synagogue was inaugurated on Schützenstraße in 1852 and then replaced with a bigger one in 1907 on Frankfurt’s Friedberger Anlage. The new synagogue was built in a neo-Romanic and Orientalist style by architects Peter Jürgensen and Jürgen Bachmann. The synagogue was burnt down during Kristallnacht in 1938.
