Question:

Hello,
Is one permitted to rent space to a church? I would imagine this would present numerous issues, including (i) deriving benefit from avodah zarah, and (ii) enabling a space for avodah zorah worship.

Thanks.

Answer:

You are correct. We are not allowed to rent space to a church because we are not a allowed to provide the avoda zara with its needs.
