Big-Zol presents: Supermarket synagogue
Northern Israel food chain sets out to maximize religious public's shopping experience, as newest branch will include in-house prayer services
Milk, eggs and evening prayers: The Big-Zol supermarket chain compound in northern Israel's Migdal Haemek will soon feature a new attraction – an in-house synagogue.


Big-Zol currently has four stores in northern Israel, with Migdal Haemek making the fifth.


The synagogue will include a small ark and offer shoppers the opportunity to hold afternoon and evening prayers, thus maximizing the shopping experience.


The 21,500-sq. foot store cost NIS 10 million (about $2.7) to build and all products and suppliers are subject to strict scrutiny to ensure kosher laws.


Big-Zol is planning to open two more stores in northern Israel in the coming year.
