The synagogue complex in Novi Sad, with the accompanying buildings of the School and Jewish Community, was built between 1906 and 1909 to the plans of Budapest architect Lipót Baumhorn.
It was designed in traditional fashion, with stylistic features of the Secession, and is considered one of the finest achievements of Viennese and Budapest architecture.
The domes and numerous rose and other windows are decorated in finely crafted stained glass. The School building, completed in 1907, and that of the Jewish Community, completed in 1908, are located to the side of the synagogue itself, built of the same materials, with façades which match it in style and ornamentation, though are more modestly decorated.
