Dushanbe's Jews face loss of synagogue

From Interfax:

Mikhail Abdurahmanov, Rabbi of Tajikistan, declared that if the synagogue in the capital city is pulled down he will in protest leave his post and repatriate to Israel.

Dushanbe Mayor’s Office insists that the community should rent another building or accept a plot of land on which to build a synagogue in the future. But the community has no means to rent facilities, even more so to build anything.

If the official proposal is accepted, Dushanbe will be left without a single synagogue, Rabbi Abdurahmanov said as cited by the Jewish News Agency.
