"Haunted" Historic Inn to be made into Synagogue.

Orthodox Jews Transforming Haunted Historic Building into Synagogue.

I think Rabbi Shraga Sherman has a wonderful plan for the historic General Wayne Inn. I had the pleasure of seeing this wonderful building in the mid 1980s. The Inn’s décor was absolutely beautiful inside. The food was delicious, but I wasn’t given the opportunity for a ghostly experience during my visit. Darn!

SJGR (South Jersey Ghost Research) used the Inn as part of their ghost research. If I’m not mistaken, it was also featured in a segment on Unsolved Mysteries.

The Inn has been closed for three years now, and the idea of it being transformed into a synagogue, Jewish community center and kosher restaurant is delightful. No, I’m not Jewish, but I have many friends who are. Sounds like a great place to meet for lunch one day.

Make me smile. Leave a comment...

I did see something about this in the PD too I think.

You know, the Chabad Lubovitchers are another bread of Jew entirely but kol ha k'vod as we say to them for trying to make a go of it at that site. Sounds like it could actually be a pretty happening place: Lubovitchers love to prostelyze and maybe those ghosts could use some converting. :)

You never know, Jill. Those ghosts could make or break the business concept. Maybe converting them isn't a bad idea. They could be good for business. :)

Hey - we could always use more members in the tribe! (and I don't use that word lightly since I know you!)
