Without permanent premises since its establishment nearly two decades ago, St Albans Masorti Synagogue may be on the brink of finding a home.
After a three-year search, a suitable and affordable property has been identified - an empty modern industrial unit on an estate just south of the city centre.
At a well-attended community meeting on Sunday, members were told that positive preliminary negotiations had been held with landlords, local authorities, police and architects.
Terms have already been agreed for a 15-year lease, with right to renew, of the 4,500 square feet unit.
