The establishment of a new “Living Synagogue”, similar to the now existing Soviet “Living Church” is the intention of a group of pious Jewish communits in Poltava.
The originators of the new communist synagogus have applied to the authorities for permission to carry our their plan. They declare that the purpose of the “Living Synagogue” will be to fight the “superstition and ignorance” which exist now in the present “dead synagogue.” The new idea will be spread by propaganda and public debates.
