Jewish congregation Beth Shoshanna has to leave the Grote Synagoge in Deventer. A controversial plan by the new owners to open a food hall in the historical building has been scrapped, but the community still has to leave and is moving to Raalte on Monday, Tom Furstenberg of Beth Shoshanna said to RTV Oost.

"It is unbelievable tat a Jewish community is removed from a synagogue in 2018. That's not normal, but it happens. After 1945 the Jewish community is just too small, too weak, to be able to resist", Furstenberg said to the broadcaster.
