The Yeshurun Synagogue, which was founded here by young English and American Jews, and now temporarily housed in the Boys’ School in Jerusalem, has acquired a site on which a synagogue building for English and American Jews will be erected. A sum of £E.18,000 was paid for the site, which is situated in King George Avenue. The building will cost about £E.50,000.
