IN BRIEF

Government to Return Synagogues

The Sejm approved a law on Feb. 20 returning property belonging to Jewish communities before World War II and serving religious purposes to its original owners. The law has now been passed on to the Senate. According to the government, today's Jewish communities can count on the return of about 2,000 buildings, primarily synagogues and cemeteries. International Jewish organizations maintain that the government should return over 6,000 properties.
