A synagogue in Aschaffenburg was first mentioned in 1344; it was used by the Jewish community until the middle of the 15th century. The building fell into decay and destroyed in 1459.
A new synagogue was built between the years 1890-1893, on the walls of the old building. On the morning of November 10th, 1938, the Sefer Torah, Parochet and archives were set on fire and the building destroyed by fire.
