Saving A Synagogue

by

In the NYT (8/19) a story described the travails of many synagogues in the USA. In Los Angeles and 80 year old temple has lost its congregants and much of its support but needs a costly $150 million renovation which they will get.

I want to bring to your attention the Free Synagogue of Flushing which recently celebrated its 95th birthday and is now in dire straights financially because it too has lost its congregants.
However that is where the comparison ends. FSF has no money to even operate. People are working without pay. It is a spectacular structure both architecturally and spiritually. It is in the center of an extremely diverse and dynamic community of downtown Flushing. And serves it continually (Note the Korean celebration in an earlier post.)

It must saved and supported. FSF is trying to sell of some of its property and is issuing secured promissory notes paying 6 %. To participate or contribute please contact Paul Klein (pesachkiein).
