A milestone in the reconstruction of the spectacular New Synagogue in Berlin has been passed with the unveiling of a lecture hall. The synagogue was wrecked by the Nazis on Kristallnacht in 1938 and destroyed by Allied bombers. Since the Berlin Wall fell in 1989, the Jewish community in the city has grown from 6,000 to 10,000, due to immigration from the former Soviet Union.
