The rebuilt Hurva Synagogue

As we get closer to Pesach, when we will sing about  “Next year in the rebuilt Jerusalem”,  here is a wonderful story about the rebuilt Hurva Synagogue in the Old Jewish quarter of Jerusalem. 

The scaffolding and cranes that have been around the Synagogue for quite some time have now come away, and the reopening of the Shule is soon.  Arutz Sheva describes some of the history of the Hurva here, including a video with scenes inside and outside of the magnificent structure. 

Remember, this was the Shule in the historic Jewish quarter that was deliberately dynamited by the Jordanians in 1948, with the hope that Jews would not return.
