The monumental Synagogue built in 1912 is proving the influence reached by the Jewsih Community in economic and cultural life of Trieste at the beginning of the XXth century. The Temple, one of the biggest and most majestic in Europe, is characterized by oriental elements in the biforas, in the columns, in the intaglios and in the peculiar rose windows designing the star of David. Inside the building, the space is divided into an oratory, now used during the week, in fastings and in the half feasts, and the great Synagogue used for the most important events. Different styles, then, for an original and striking structure, with bright and elegant interiors, ending with four strong marble pillars that sustain a big central dome.

London neighbourhoods Our family of four is traveling to London in July. We would like to look for an air bnb in a secular neighbourhood within an hour's walk to an Orthodox synagogue. Can you suggest some neighbourhoods for us to try?
how to ship belongings What does Customs allow or what items do they tax heavily. I have electronics, laptop, tablet, printers, I need as a writer, and also want some household items for an apt. with me. Want to give out blankets, soup, and bread to poor and shut-in Holocaust survivors too. Have Israeli friends, but don't want to bother them before I visit them. No idea who to contact for apt. search and for Customs requirements.
