(Yiddish) Synagogue. Somehow the Yiddish term is far more popular, maybe because 'synagogue" sounds so very Latin. Shul actually means 'school" in Yiddish and German, and evokes the use of the shul as a place to gather and to learn Torah at all hours of the day and night, as well as a place where religious services are held.
