The Tiferet Yisrael Synagogue, in Jerusalem’s Old City, will be rebuilt by the Israeli government at a cost of NIS 50 million, according to a report in Yisrael Hayom. The government is expected to officially make the announcement on Jerusalem Day, which is this coming Wednesday.

The synagogue was built in 1872, and was purposely targeted and destroyed by the Jordanians in 1948 during the War of Independence, when the Arab states tied to destroy the fledgling Jewish state.

From 1948 until 1967, under Jordanian control, there were no Jews in the Old City of Jerusalem.

Jews have made up the majority of Jerusalem’s residents since the 1800’s.

In 2010, the Hurva Synagogue which was also targeted and destroyed by the Jordanians, was rebuilt.

    Finally some good news this morning! And I ask, will Jews be allowed into Tiferet Yisrael Synagogue…or is this just for the tourist? Cynical, yes…I’d be more impressed if the islamics were driven from our Temple Mount and the ‘dome’ of the rock dismantled…forever: “They Must Go!”

  4. MarkusBrajtman says:

    All very nice.
    Build a new synagogue which costs NIS 50 million, whlie there are thousands of poor Jews in Israel. Chidren with little food because parents do not have jobs.

    The beautiful Hurva Synagogue in the Old City rebuilt at a huge cost.

    Surely, the right thing to do, would be to wait and see if there will be peace, and if Jerusalem and the Old City will be in Israel and not in the PA state if there is ever such a place.

    The Jew hating world wants that part of Jerusalem to be the capital of a PA State.
    And Abbas has said that no Jew would be allowed to live in a PA state.
    That means that the Kotel and the Jewwish quarter will be closed to Jews.
    The money is needed for the living. Not for bricks and mortor.
    STOP.

    Hopefully the entire Jerusalem will be Israeli. Then build.
