Shanghai - Othel Rachel Synagogue #general

Debbie Raff <seraff@...>

I just read an article in our Jewish Community News about the restoration
of the Othel Rachel Synagogue in Shanghai. According to the article,
interior can never be completely restored until those in charge of
work know exactly what it looked like.
There are no official interior photographs. It is hoped that
for the
few years between the end of WWII and 1949, when all the members of the
synagogue were forced to leave Shanghai, some services were held during
which the no photos rule MAY not have been enforced
The article gives the name, address, and phone number of someone >from the
Pasadena Jewish Temple in CA. I have no other knowledge of this, other than
what I read in the article. If, perchance, you have or know someone who has
interior photos of this synagogue, e-mail me privately and I'll send you
the information on the contact person.
