I noticed your photograph of this synagogue on your website.  I don't know whether you saw this article in the Buffalo News:
The Conservancy has helped the Congregation cope with Dept. of Buildings violations and extend the life of the current roof by about 5 years--a window in which to plan and fundraise for more comprehensive and permanent repairs.  Clearly, the congregation needs partners to generate more frequent use and an income stream for the building.  I would be very interested in speaking with interested Buffalo area residents about the former synagogue's future.
