Our community was built from scratch. We now have homes, preschools, a community center, and more. However, we cannot boast a permanent synagogue. 34 years after the first families broke ground, we are still gathering for prayer and traditional gatherings in the local community center. Our community has worked hard to raise the funds for a permanent and meaningful synagogue. We began building in 2014 and have completed the first stage of construction: foundations, flooring, and a bomb shelter. Our synagogue will, of course, hold daily, Shabbat, and holiday prayers. However, we also envision a synagogue that is open throughout the week for Jewish study, Jewish heritage programs for children, and a place that the community can gather in celebration or commemoration. The full size of the synagogue will be 800 square meters.
