Estonia’s Jewish Community hopes its first synagogue built since World War II will open in February. Construction of the $2 million, 200-seat synagogue started in 2005 in central Tallinn, the Estonian capital. “It’s almost finished,” community spokesman Rabbi Shmuel Kot told The Associated Press, which noted that the synagogue was to have opened this month but was delayed due to extra construction. The complex will house a museum and kosher restaurant. Approximately 3,000 Jews live in Estonia, mostly in Tallinn.
