A rent dispute between Ohr Natan synagogue and the Rego Park congregations’ landlord has landed the two in court.
Rabbi Nahum Kaziev, who leads the Bukharian house of worship, at 98-81 Queens Blvd., said Ohr Natan was served with an eviction notice after the property owners accused the temple of not paying rent.
He said the synagogue continued sending monthly checks, but was told its landlord, Trylon LLC, did not receive them.

The temple attempted to send more checks to account for the missing money, but Trylon argued the rent was late and moved to terminate its lease in Queens Supreme Court, according to Kaziev.
Judge Terrence O’Conner dismissed the case because of a technicality earlier this month, but Trylon LLC plans to re-file its case.
