Synagogue Opens Discotheque

The basement in the new and luxurious Hechal-Hanes (Palace of Miracle) Synagogue here has been transformed into a lively discotheque replete with dim lights, comfortable arm chairs and the latest dance records. There is even a bar providing soft drinks and snacks. The Jewish community decided to utilize the synagogue facilities which, except for the holidays, was not used. The feeling was that by opening a discotheque which would also function as a social club, young Jewish boys and girls would have a place to meet, fall in love and marry. Apparently it worked. Several young people who met at the discotheque are about to get married.
