  • 24. Now
    YOUR help
  • 25. Throughout Europe, during the Holocaust, our synagogues were burned to the ground.  But in the USSR it continued until the fall of Communism in 1991. 
  • 26.   In 1971, our community's Central synagogue was burned and then bulldozed!  Unbelievably, even now, in 2009, the city council wants to repeat the performance,
    G-d forbid!  They want to burn down, so to speak, the synagogue planned to replace the original synagogue in Simferopol, by confiscating the property we bought.  
  • 27. In 1998
    Property was purchased  to rebuild the shul as the new Jewish Center in Crimea.  Just before actually starting to build, an urgent need to open a Jewish Day school arose.  The synagogue plans were put on hold and the land remained barren.
  • 28. In 2007
    the city council voted to take the land away.  In an openly miraculous way, they themselves overturned the decision.
  • 29. We are once again being threatened that the land will be confiscated if we do not begin to build immediately. 
  • 30. The original building plans include:
    Two Mikvaos
    (men’s and women’s)
    Soup Kitchen
    Judaica Library
    Audio-Visual Library
    Humanitarian Aid Center
    Social Hall

    Stage 2asdf
    ad2nd and 3rd floors
    3.5 Million Dollars 
    However, due to the economic crisis those plans are on hold.
  • 32. Our goal, for now, is to build a preliminary one story building immediately, thereby making a strong legal claim that the property is ours. 
  • 33. Its total cost is only $55,000
  • 34.
