The Brooklyn Heights Synagogue’s homeless shelter, which had been open to only women, will now be available to men only. This comes as a nearby CAMBA shelter for men announced that it is closing. The BHS shelter has 10 beds and many of them go unoccupied, according to a report in the Brooklyn Eagle. Any women who need assistance are now being redirected to a facility in Lower Manhattan.
