The Silver Spring Chabad will be tearing down its synagogue and replacing it with a larger building within "a matter of months."
The building at the corner of Lamberton Drive and Lovejoy Street in Kemp Mill, which has been the Chabad's home for eight years, will be totally removed and replaced with a larger house, explained Rabbi Berel Wolvovsky.
"We've improvised for many years" and really need a new building to accommodate the 90 to 100 people who attend the shul, Wolvovsky said.
"It made more sense for us to start over" than to restructure the current facility, he added, noting that the final price tag will probably be $1 million. continue @ the Washington Jewish Week
