Veselková Francová, Markéta ; Kotas, Jan (advisor) ; Tichý, Radek (referee)
The aim of the thesis Jewish Roots of Christian Liturgy and Their Current Presence in the Practice of Particular Catholic Communities is to map the current state of research about Jewish roots of Christian liturgy using the available literature as the basis and show on the specific example of two Catholic communities (Community of The Beatitudes and The Saint James Vicariate for Hebrew Speaking Catholics) how they experience these Jewish roots and how it manifests in their liturgical practice. The work is divided into two steps: In the first part, current knowledge about Jewish sources from which the Christian liturgy drew and draws is summarized. The most important elements, types and forms of Jewish prayers are described, and then it is described which parts of the Christian liturgy are based on which types and forms of prayers. In the second part, the history of the establishment of the Beatitudes Community and the Hebrew Parish is described and their liturgical practice is analyzed with a focus on their motivations for emphasis of the Jewish roots, the development of this practice and its specifics, and their relation to the original historical basis points. The conclusion represents a reflection on the more general benefit of the practice of these two communities and the benefit of knowledge...

Ňukovičová, Karin ; Baranyai, René (referee) ; Dulenčín, Juraj (advisor)
This architectural study concerns designing a new synagogue in the city of Frýdek-Místek. In 1939, the original synagogue was burned down and subsequently demolished. The venue is currently known only from historical map records. Besides designing the new synagogue, the construction program also includes a kosher restaurant, an administrative space for the Jewish community, and a ritual bath Mikveh. The developed concept for the new estate is based on the functional needs of the individual parts and the estate's historical context. The design for the synagogue itself is based on Jewish history, culture, and symbolism.
New synagogue in Opava
Gášek, Daniel ; Velek, Jan (referee) ; Dulenčín, Juraj (advisor)
The aim of the thesis was to create an architectural study of the new synagogue in Opava. Similarly to many other towns and cities, the former synagogue was burned during Kristallnacht, the ruins were completely demolished and taken away. Nowadays there are no buildings on the site, except the former Rabbi’s house. Basic idea was in preserving the park character of the site by insertion of a non-arrogant low cuboid volume in the neighbourhood of apartment buildings from the first half of the 20th century. Designed form benefits from the character of the site while humbly avoiding construction on the actual place where the burnt synagogue stood. This creates an elegant, low object, whose two dominant ceiling slabs are filled with glass in between so it preserves a part of the park’s existing transparency and let the interior freely connect with exterior, also thanks to large sliding windows. In the center of the block is situated three sides closed atrium, which surrounds the new synagogue, into whose interior delicate scattered sunlight penetrates through the translucent onyx stone walls.
New synagogue Česká Lípa
Prachař, Jakub ; Velek, Jan (referee) ; Dulenčín, Juraj (advisor)
This diploma thesis deals with the design of a new synagogue in Česká Lípa. The subject of the solution is also the design of a Jewish community center, a kosher restaurant and a museum of Jewish culture. An architectural study of A2 format and a reduced copy of A3 format were prepared. A presentation poster in B1 format and an architectural design model in 1: 200 scale were made. When designing the complex, I emphasized the main visual axes from the street to the building. The synagogue is designed as the dominant feature of the whole complex - it is elevated above the other masses of the building. The complex is designed as a single-story mass with a square floor plan. The individual corners are elevated above the other mass. Each of the corners responds with its mass to the internal traffic. In the middle of the complex is a square outdoor courtyard. The expression of the object is to express purity and simplicity - that is why light shades have been designed. The surfaces are covered with white plaster and the concrete surfaces are designed with exposed white concrete. Gold brass elements are designed here as a reference to Jewish wealth.

Knichal, Filip ; Gürtler,, Ivan (referee) ; Dulenčín, Juraj (advisor)
The subject of the diploma thesis is the design of the New Synagogue in Česká Lípa on U Synagogy Street. In the past, there was a large Jewish community with a school, mikvehs and a synagogue in the area, which was burned down during the Crystal Night in November 1938. Today, there is a public parking area and dilapidated buildings from the 1990s. The aim of the design is to create a new facility for the Jewish community, including administration with a rabbinate, community center, archive of Jewish literature with study, multipurpose lecture hall, workshop rooms for the Jewish community with the possibility of renting the public, kosher restaurant for members and the general public. kosher products, a synagogue with a ritual bath mikveh and a memorial to the victims of the holocaust in the courtyard. The building should also serve to educate the general and professional public and the Jewish Sunday class for education and leisure activities. The dominant element of the whole building are the erected masts running to the lost in regular lines, like the reminiscence of the burned synagogue. This monument forms the center line of the entire building. The resulting volume is at a similar height of the original building according to the preserved drawing documentation. The masts themselves symbolize the victims of the Holocaust in Česká Lípa. At their tops are spotlights that symbolize the souls of the victims. The monument is complemented by two fountains with running water. The newly designed synagogue respects the position of the floor plan of the burned synagogue. The prayer house is deliberately situated below ground level in the spirit of the fulfillment of Psalm 130: 1 "From the depths of the bottomless I call to you, Lord."
New synagogue Česká Lípa
Marečková, Andrea ; Baranyai, René (referee) ; Dulenčín, Juraj (advisor)
The diploma thesis is focused on the design of a new synagogue in Česká Lípa. The solved area is located close to the city center on the site where the original synagogue was burned down during Crystal Night. The boundary of the area is U Synagogy Street, on the north and south sides there are terraced buildings and on the east side there is an embankment with a first-class road. The area used to be behind the city walls, which no longer exist. The design of the synagogue in the Z-V axis and the connection to the U Synagogy road are also important in the design. The negative factor that affects the area, is the busy and dusty road located on the embankment, which creates a visual barrier and divides the city into several parts. For these reasons, the synagogue was located at the intersection of the adjacent streets and as far away from the busy road as possible. The other objects in the design are positioned so that they create a noise barrier and their windows are not turned to communicate. Thanks to the location of individual functions, an inner block was created in the middle of the solved area, intended for rest and meeting of people. The location of the kosher restaurant attracts its location from the adjacent U Synagogy street and at the same time it is turned into a quiet courtyard, where there is a small outdoor seating area. The office building and community center line the embankment on the east side, separating the busy road from the quiet courtyard. These buildings are also facing the courtyard and only the windows of the stairs or background are located on the facade to the road. In the southern part of the area, a ramp leading to an underground car park is proposed, which connects the administrative building with the community center. An important element of the design are the perforated panels located on the facade of the synagogue. The perforation is based on a Jewish star, these are equilateral triangles. Thanks to the perforated panels, privacy
New synagogue Jablonec nad Nisou
Janáková, Adéla ; Baranyai, René (referee) ; Dulenčín, Juraj (advisor)
The subject of this thesis is the design of the new synagogue in Jablonec nad Nisou on Lipanská Street. In the past, there used to be a synagogue for more than 280 believers that was located in the area which is being considered. The synagogue was burned down by Nazi Germany in 1938, during Kristallnacht. Today, it is a public space, public parking and a memorial to the victims of the Holocaust. The goal of the design is to create a new synagogue, the primary location of the Jewish community including the administration with the rabbinate, a community center, a study room and a library of Jewish literature, multi-purpose spaces, a kosher restaurant for community members and the general public, a kosher food store, a museum of Jewish culture and a mikveh ritual bath. The objects will be used for members of the Jewish community and at the same time for the education of the general public and academics. The construction of the building complex is located in an area with relatively challenging terrain. The key moment was dealing with the setting of the building on a steep slope and at the same time designing the correct operation of the individual buildings. The location of the kosher restaurant attracts the public from the adjacent Lipanská street, and at the same time it is also located in the quiet part towards the south. Its sales area is two-storey, so it also extends to the level of the lower floor open to the river. There is a quiet zone between the restaurant and museum buildings - summer outdoor seating, or museum exhibition. The museum is also situated along the adjacent street, where the main entrance to the building is located. The facade of the museum is characterized by an alternation of convex and arched windows towards the inside, which open into the elevated exhibition hall. Objects should radiate minimalism and purity. Therefore, light shades of colors were chosen. In the upper part, the facades are covered with white stucco plaster. In the part of the ground floor, a motif of flutes pointing vertically towards the sky was designed using shaped plaster in a shade of light gray.
ŠAFOV – URBAN RENEWAL OF A VILLAGE IN THE BORDER REGION
Ličmanová, Eva ; Adamková, Jana (referee) ; Havliš, Karel (advisor)
Thesis deals with Šafov, small village located near Austrian border. History of the village is quite dramatic. Population is ten times smaller nowadays than during its greatest prosperity. At the village there was a jewish part destroyed during and after World War II. Nowadays there are only a few houses and jewish cemetary. Continuity was extremely aborted after World War II, when most residents had to leave their homes because of German nationality. New comming people early had to live very close to Iron Curtain. After many years Šafov can breathe freely but stigma of the past is still evident. I try to preserve dramatical history but also design new active plan. Thesis is divided to three parts: urban planning, architecture and landscape. There are some bigger interventions and also small and easily realizable ones.
New synagogue Česká Lípa
Tomický, Ondřej ; Velek, Jan (referee) ; Dulenčín, Juraj (advisor)
The subject of my diploma thesis is the design of a new synagogue and a Jewish community centre in a town Česká Lípa. The area in question is located on the street U Synagogy, on the south-eastern edge of the historic city centre, on the site where the Jewish town was located in the past. However, the long history of the Jewish community of Česká Lípa, which had its synagogue, Jewish school, rabbinate, mikveh ritual bath and others, was interrupted by the events of the Second World War and the subsequent post-war developments in Czechoslovakia and the world. The original synagogue was burned down by the Nazis in 1938, and many of the monuments of the Jewish community in Česká Lípa gradually disappeared, as did the community itself. My goal is to design a new facility for the Jewish community. Therefore, I designed a proposal for a new synagogue and a community centre, including the administration of the Jewish community with an archive of Jewish literature, exhibition, and lecture spaces, the new mikveh ritual bath and kosher restaurant for members of the community and the general public. The design also includes the overall revitalization of the public space and its pedestrian accessibility, the planting of new greenery and the placement of two new monuments to commemorate the Jewish past of Česká Lípa. The designed project should than serve not only members of the Jewish community, but the whole general public as a new public space that will offer new opportunities for socialization, education, and leisure in a more dignified environment. The defining element of the proposal is the site of the former synagogue, which will become a courtyard that will be surrounded on the three sides by the new synagogue and community centre. Both buildings face the city centre with their main facades and main entrances. Both the synagogue and the community centre will be situated on a raised terrace accessible by a staircase, symbolizing the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. The chosen morphology and material design of the buildings intend to evoke the sense of massiveness, stability, dignity, and safety to the passers-by. Two new monuments will be placed on an axis of the new courtyard – the column and the fountain. The column on the place of the former entrance to the former synagogue symbolizing a raised-up finger in warning. The fountain on the spot of the bema, a sacred place where no one except for the rabbi is allowed. The water will symbolically prevent the movement of pedestrians who will have to go around this former sacred place. Nowadays, there is a public parking lot on the site of the former synagogue, and the entire area of the former Jewish town is in a state of neglect. I sincerely hope that with my proposal I will contribute to the commemoration of the Jewish past of Česká Lípa, to understanding among the people and that the nowadays neglected area will become a dignified public space.
The new synagogue in Frýdek-Místek
Hanousek, Ondřej ; Baranyai, René (referee) ; Dulenčín, Juraj (advisor)
The thesis deals with a hypothetical project of a new building complex of a synagogue, a kosher restaurant and a community centre at the location of the former synagogue in Frýdek. The proposal includes a memorial of the destroyed synagogue and Jewish community, as well as the incorporation of the complex into the urban structure of the city. The project proposes a building distributed into three volumes. The restaurant and community centre are connected by an underground garage within a U-shaped floor plan. The buildings are axially symmetrical, white, with expressive rhythmical perforations of the facade. They surround the building of the synagogue in the shape of a seven-sided pyramid, which is clad with blue tempered steel and creates a strong contrast with the associated buildings. The whole complex is oriented towards the park and the chateau in Frýdek, from which it is clearly visible and thanks to its distinct volumetric and material expression and axially symmetrical composition creates a new landmark for the city.
