'A house of God is a house of God'

Jewish congregation finds home in church

Congregation Mateh Chaim in Palm Bay, Florida using sanctuary at Riviera United Church of Christ for its services while struggling to save enough money for permanent home

A Jewish congregation in Florida has found an unlikely home.

 

Congregation Mateh Chaim in Palm Bay has been using the sanctuary at Riviera United Church of Christ for its services.

 

The small congregation has been struggling to save enough money for a permanent home.

 

In the meantime, twice a month, they gather at church.

 

Fifty-eight-year-old member Harriet May says she's grown used to the oddity of it all. She says "a house of God is a house of God."

 

The congregation's leaders hope to secure a permanent synagogue in the next two years.
