I had an opportunity to sit down today with my colleague Daniel Luria, the executive director of Ateret Cohanim. Daniel is on the daily frontlines of battling to redeem areas of Jerusalem once filled with Jews.
Thankfully in all of the darkness of the last few weeks we were able to redeem the Old Yemenite Synagogue in Shiloach (Silwan) after 75 years of Arabs squatting within. Now the renovation begins.
Enjoy the conversation and as Daniel insists the newly reacquired synagogue needs a lot of refurbishment. Those interested can help below.
