Major restoration campaign - at the Kishinev Synagogue

Of the 70 synagogues in Kishinev, only one survived communism. This shul is operated by Rabbi Zalman Abelsky Chief Rabbi of Kishinev and Moldova. The synagogue (known as “The Glaziers Synagogue”) has been active for over 100 years. Thousand of people gather here in the high holidays.

Today the synagogue is the “Jewish embassy” of Kishinev and Moldova. Thousands of Jews [and non Jews] use the synagogue’s educational, social and humanitarian services. In order for the synagogue to stay active, the community has launched a major restoration campaign. We need your help. Please lend a helping hand and let’s do it together.
