"getting out of..." is not a sentence that would be used in English. Leaving, exiting but never getting out of.

"Getting out" has an element of escaping in English: getting out of prison, hospital, the jungle or a bad business deal etc. We would more usually use "leaving" for exiting a place of worship - unless it happened to be on fire of course ...!

Why not "going out of"?

"Going out of" is accepted if the rest of the sentence is correct as well.

I heard cimagroute when spoken by the man, but clearly synagogue when the woman spoke. That made it impossible to translate.
