An historic lower east side synagogue ravaged by a fire last month may soon be demolished.
Members from a Manhattan community board have approved a proposal to tear down the Beth Hamedrash Hagadol synagogue on Norfolk Street.
That could result in either a partial or a full demolition.
But the committee urged the Synagogue's owners to figure out which remaining pieces of the building can be preserved.
Those elements could be used for a new structure on the lot.
Now that the board has approved the draft, it will vote on the resolution next week.
Police say a 14-year-old boy set off the three-alarm fire that ripped through the landmark structure.
The building was vacant at the time of the fire and no one was hurt.
The synagogue hosted one of the oldest European Orthodox Jewish congregations in the country.
