There always seem to be a fine line between places of worship and community center. My solution you ask? Amend the zoning code so they're treated exactly the same. A small community center should be allowed anywhere a church is allowed and vice versa.

Don't shut it down. That's just salty.

JERSEY CITY -- A three-story synagogue on Martin Luther King Drive is at the center of a controversy in a rapidly changing inner-city neighborhood.

The leader of the area's business group has asked the city to shut down the shul, pointing to zoning laws that largely do not permit houses of worship along Martin Luther King Drive. Members of the Hasidic Jewish community are objecting, and tell The Jersey Journal the location is a community center, not a formal synagogue.

The tussle comes as the historically black neighborhood has become more attractive to Hasidic Jews who say they have been priced out of Brooklyn. They say the Martin Luther King Drive location is a temporary meeting place as they make plans for a larger, more formal synagogue.
