An historic Syracuse Jewish congregation has voted to sell its 100-year-plus synagogue.
Temple Concord's congregation voted overwhelmingly Sunday to sell their 108-year-old building at Madsion Street and University Avenue for 9 million dollars to a developer of college housing. Temple Rabbi Daniel Feldman says the church's board got an offer out of the blue back in March. The rabbi says their building is falling apart and the congregation has been struggling financially for decades. The church's plan is to put 6 million of the proceeds into an endowment fund, with the remaining 3 million to be used to build a modern new synagogue. Temple Concord has been in existence in Syracuse since 1839.
