Google shows me Cong Beth Gavriel- Valley Stream Jewish Center

Formerly known as  Gates of Zion/ Valley Stream Jewish Center.

Old ballroom was pretty dated and not that large either.  I wonder what they did to it.

I hope they don't run into the same issues as the mansion. If they outright bought it and the conservative congregation doesn't use it at all, they shouldn't.

What issues does the Mansion have?

A lot of people won't use it because the sanctuary is still used

They outright bought it,  as far as I understand from the tenants who were renting before the sale.

The fact that the sanctuary is still used may be an issue I don't really know. I do know that many local rabbanim don't allow it
