Secular Jordan Valley Town Opens First Synagogue


The secular town of Ro'i in the Jordan Valley chose a unique way to mark its 37th birthday: by building its first synagogue.

With the help of the Ayelet HaShachar organization, the synagogue was up and running this past Friday, just in time for the first Sabbath of its 38th year. It was dedicated to the memory of the three murdered youths Eyal Yifrach, Gilad Sha'ar, and Naftali Frenkel.
