Opening of the "new" Churvah Synagogue


In a month from now, Jerusalem is going to celebrate the inauguration of the "new" Churvah Synagogue in the Jewish Quarter. The famous Synagogue was completely destroyed by the Jordanians in 1948. For many many years, a discussion was taking place among the inhabitants of the Jewish Quarter in the Old City. Would it be of any advantage to collect so many millions in order to rebuild the Synagogue or should the money be rather invested in other things ? Finally a decision was made and the Churvah is back.
