We continue our tour in the center of Moscow, close to the area where the Jews used to live in the past. We’ll visit the Choral Synagogue that recently celebrated its 100 year anniversary. It is a very impressive building, constructed by a renowned Moscow architect Roman Klein. Surprisingly, this synagogue was the only one that continued to operate throughout the Soviet years.
