Dedicated on March 23, 1860, the Haupt-Synagoge, located on the Börnestrasse, became the center of Reform Judaism in Frankfurt am Main. Architect Johann Georg Kayser (1817-75) designed the Synagogue in the historicist style. It was destroyed during the violence of Kristallnacht (November 9-10, 1938).
