At a judgment on Wednesday, the Land and Environment Court in Sydney blocked the construction of a new synagogue near Bondi Beach. The reason given: Jewish organizations are targets for terror, and they don’t want that in their town.
The ceremony to rededicate the synagogue museum is part of an effort by the Moroccan government to restore Casablanca’s Old Medina. A grant by the government of about $844,000 funded most of the restorations.
Ivanka Trump, the Jewish daughter of President-elect Donald Trump, and her husband Jared Kushner are reportedly looking into which Washington, DC synagogue congregation to join before they move to the capital for the tenure of Trump’s presidency.
