A historic moment for Jewish Berlin. For the first time in history, a spacious and air-conditioned shul has been opened at the central airport of Berlin, Germany, for the benefit of thousands of Jewish passengers traveling through the airport.

The ceremony was attended by Chief Rabbi Yehuda Teichta and a number of local shluchim in the city. Rabbi Teichtal was honored with affixing the mezuza and led the crowd in reciting chapters of Tehillim.

Berlin Airport COO Thomas Hoff Anderson and Israel’s Consul General in Berlin were also present at the opening ceremony and spoke about this historic turn of events.

For the convenience of all passengers, the prayer area was placed in Terminal 1, Gate C21 from where all flights depart to Israel.
