Chief Rabbi Intervenes for Migron Synagogue

Chief Sephardi Rabbi Shlomo Amar has written to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu asking him to spare the synagogue in Migron. The synagogue, along with the rest of the community, is slated for demolition.

Rabbi Amar noted that during the expulsion of Jews from Gush Katif the army did not touch the synagogues, in according to an opinion voiced by many leading rabbis. The synagogues were subsequently destroyed by local Arabs.
