House in east Louisville applies to become synagogue

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Dozens of concerned east Louisville residents addressed public officials Saturday about a safety concern.

Neighbors gathered near Alamara Circle to have their concerns and questions answered after complaining about high traffic the past three months in their neighborhood.

Members of Chabad of Kentucky near Anshei Sfard synagogue have applied for a residential home to get an additional permit, so they can transform it into a "Chabad" House.

The house would be for fellowship events not permitted in the synagogue.

But neighbors say they are concerned for safety, parking and traffic throughout their streets.

The permit is scheduled to be approved on September 13.

The synagogue's rabbi could not comment because of the Sabbath.
