Parents Riled Over Discovery That Tel Aviv Preschool Doubles as Synagogue

Parents claim that use of the preschool building as a synagogue on Sabbaths and holidays endangers the facility, and that the combination of religion and education is 'unacceptable.'

Every morning children fill the Raqia preschool in the Nofei Yam neighborhood of north Tel Aviv. The preschool began operating this year on the premises of the elementary school built near the Sde Dov Airport. On weekends and holidays, the preschool transforms into a synagogue.
