The inauguration of the Choral Synagogue in Drohobych, Ukraine, following more than a decade of fitfull renovation.

A monumental synagogue whose facade features a tall, rectangular arch over the main portal, perhaps the largest synagogue in eastern Galicia; built in 1842-1865. After World War II it was used as a furniture store and stood abandoned for many years.
