Where have all the Jews gone?

Rua Filipe de Mata 113-2

Shaare Tikva Synagogue / Rua Filipe da Mata 113-2° / Lisboa, Portugal

I thought that the Shaare Tikva Synagogue in Lisboa was one of a recent handfull to be renovated in Portugal. Apparently, I was wrong: It is now an apartment building.

There is supposedly another synagogue in use on the same street (found out about only after Shabbat), but I walked the entire street and saw no signage. There was a building close by that looked like it could have been a synagogue with a sign announcing it was converting to condos or for sale. Disappointing regardless.

(The brevity is on account of me being sick, by the way.)
