The synagogue in Făgăraș has remained an unused building since 1987, following the reduction of the number of Jews in the community. The Făgăraș Community Foundation (FCTF) together with the Insitute, contacted the Federation of Romanian Jewish Communities (FCER) in 2017 and opened the discussion in order to use the Synagogue building for cultural activities. During the years 2018-2019, several discussions took place with the representatives of FCER and of the Făgăraș City Hall.
In 2019, it was decided that the administration of the Synagogue building would be the responsibility of the City Hall Făgăraș Municipality through an administration contract.
The goal agreed with FCER is the development of an International Cultural Center.
