See Possibility of Homel Jews Getting Synagogue Back

Download PDF for this date

The possibility that the religious Jews of Homel may, get back their synagogue which was converted into a workers club was seen today in the announcement of the Jewish needle workers union of Homel that they have no funds to complete the remodeling of the building. When the synagogue was first taken over 40,000 rubles were invested in remodeling the building but funds to complete the work are not available. Hence the religious Jews are trying to get back their synagogue.
