Rios de Agua Viva


Converting a house or store into use as a place of worship is a necessity for many urban congregations and the Bronx is home to hundreds of them. (More on a shteibel, or small synagogue that my grandfather used to attend in another post.) Most churches, mosques and mandirs of this type save their decorations for the inside. However the blue and white paint of this Pentecostal church formerly on Hoe Avenue hint at it’s name: Rios de Agua Viva-Rivers of Living Water.
