Breakaway Synagogues


Yesterday we began discussing the imperative for a community to construct a synagogue.

The Mishneh Berurah, citing Radvaz, says that this should, ideally, be a single synagogue for a geographic community. If there is strife, then the community should work to end the strife. Only if the strife is irresolvable, and fights are continually springing up, should they proceed to build a new synagogue.

(Mishneh Berurah 150:2)

Have a great day,
