We just got to San Antonio tonight after a long day. We are staying right behind the Alamo in a high rise Mariott Residence Inn that is actually right next to a very old synagogue that has been turned into a night club and there was a line of about 100 people outside waiting to get into the club when we walked by.
Kinda strange to see this re-use of such an old jewish structure. The Star of David was still above the door (it’s actually part of the building).
It was a nice ride down and we got here, walked to the river and had dinner on the River Walk. Here’s a shot I took of Ruthie on the way back to the hotel.
Note: In Nov. 2010 we went back and actually spoke to someone at this club and they knew the history of the building. It turned out NOT to have ever been a synagogue, but a German club and the Star of David was used by the immigrants as a symbol.
