Explanation:
kenassa (arba kenassah)

RETURN OF RELIGIOUS BUILDINGS TO KARAITES EXPECTED. The Crimean authorities have decided to return kenassahs -- Karaite religious buildings -- to them. The Karaites are an offshoot of Judaism, who are not ethnically Jewish but are Tatar and recognize only the Torah. The Karaites have for a long time been trying to reclaim these buildings. The responsible official declined to give Keston News Service any details, but confirmed that two kenessahs would be returned to the "Karaite Spiritual Administration." (Keston News Service, 17 August)
