Endangered European synagogues
get financial help


Ruth E. Gruber/JTA

Threatened historic synagogues in seven countries received an exceptional Chanukah gift this year: $250,000 in grants to help save them. Ranging from $10,000 to $70,000, the grants target synagogues in Yugoslavia, Belarus, Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, and Ukraine, plus an archaeological site in Surinam featuring the brick remains of what is said to be the first synagogue of any architectural significance in the New World. Announced shortly before the holiday by the World Monuments Fund and The Ronald S. Lauder Foundation, the grants also include a commitment from the Lauder Foundation to donate $500,000 over the next five years toward saving sites of Jewish heritage. The grants were believed to be one of the biggest ever awarded to Jewish heritage sites.
