A Jewish community in Russia had to drop its claim for an old synagogue building confiscated by the Bolsheviks. The Krasnodar community will ask the city for a plot of land to build a new shul instead. The synagogue building now houses the local offices of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation. “We have tried to get the old building of the synagogue transferred to the community, but we failed,” community chairman Yuri Teitelbaum told the Interfax news agency this week. He said the synagogue is currently housed in a rented private house.
