Merging synagogues


One may not close an active synagogue in order to merge it with another synagogue, for several reasons. Among these is the concern that people who live near the now-closed synagogue will no longer walk to davening on Shabbat.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 2:46)

Have a great day,
