    The former Tempel (not “Temple”) should be repaired by Germany and Romania, who tried to destroy the building in 1941.The city of Chernivtsi should then use the building as a convention center, or congress hall, with a small area set aside as a museum documenting the design, building and use of the building.Using this building, which was built as a synagogue, as a movie theatre is insulting to Jews all over the world, using it as a convention center, would beboth much more respectful and would also bring in the revenue necessary for its maintenance.Czernowitz was known as a cultural center and this is still the greatest asset Chernivtsi has today. Building on this heritage, Chernivtsi could become a center for cultural tourism, thereby improving not only its reputation, but also its economic wellbeing.
