9/26/2010 2:55 AM This is the year of the erection of a synagogue, encrypted in two passages of the Bible; you have to reckon the gematria of the letters to find it. The year is 1930.

The text says : shenat (year) RAV SHALOM LEVANEKHA (mulyiply the peace for thy children)

RAV SHALOM is quoted from Psalms 37:11
LEVANEKHA is quoted from Psalms 128:6

All the best.
