From Shul to Mosque?

The Princess Road Synagogue in Liverpool, architecturally acclaimed as one of the most beautiful in Europe but seriously damaged by fire in 1979, may become a mosque.

An energetic appeal raised the funds to restore the interior of the 116-year-old building to its original splendor, but an aging and declining membership cannot be restored. Few Jews still live in the area.

The membership will meet on Feb. 18 to decide whether to accept an offer from the Moslem community for the building, which is for sale.
