Temples fall, temples rise

The newly built Catholic church towers over the ruins of the old synagogue in the north of Moldova.

Both Jews and Catholics are tiny minorities in Moldova these days. But apparently at some point in the past Moldova's capital was more than fifty percent Jewish.

This synagogue must have been stunning judging by what is left of it. It has stairs within one of its walls, which take you right at the top of it (that's where this photo is taken from).
