SLOVAKIA New uses for synagogues

It’s good to see the mainstream media pick up on Jewish heritage concerns and the difficult issue of how to deal with and use surviving synagogues in towns where Jews no longer live.

The Slovak Spectator newspaper runs a lengthy article on this topic, “Old Synagogues Find New Life.”

The article mentions the current state and use of synagogues in several cities. (Oddly, though, it does not mention Maros Borsky’s work, with the Slovak Jewish Heritage Route and the Slovak Jewish Heritage web site).
