Construction Resumes On Belarus Shul Restoration
After a nearly year-long hiatus, work has once again commenced on the restoration of the historic Shul in Grodno, Belarus. “This great undertaking is being sponsored by an Australia resident, Avi Silver, whose ancestors came from Grodno," explained Boris Kvyatkovskiy, the Chairman of the local Jewish community. "Because of his generous assistance, we are already able to conclude an agreement with specialists for conducting research on and completing the repair of fragments of the Choral Synagogue’s facade."
