A synagogue in Bridgeport has been listed for $4.5 million. Congregation Rodeph Sholom decided to sell the 30,256-square-foot building on Park Avenue amid dwindling attendance and a dearth of younger worshippers, since the congregation “primarily consists of individuals ages 55 and older,” the Fairfield County Business Journal reported. The synagogue itself includes a sanctuary space that seats 750 people, as well as a chapel and a social hall. Its new owner would be able to seek a permit to convert the building into a school or a community center. [FBJ]
