sovay: (Psholtii: in a bad mood)
I get that Beth Hamedrash Hagodol had ceased to exist as a congregation a full ten years ago and I am disappointed that the historic building was left to fall into increasing disrepair rather than being preserved as a landmark, but that doesn't make me feel any better about the fact that the oldest Eastern European synagogue in the United States was just burnt down.

(I especially don't appreciate finding out while attempting to write about a piece of astonishing Holocaust literature. Which is almost certainly not going to happen this afternoon because I am still running a fever and sneezing my head off and I fell over after walking to the library to return a book, but the timing was just unnecessary.)
