Lobby Construction Updates

God created the world in six days.

It’s going to take us a little longer.

We are so excited to be renovating our lobby to become brighter, more welcoming, and even more secure than it currently is! Construction is in full swing and is scheduled to conclude in late spring 2019. During this time, our regular community and social action programming will continue, but there may be some small changes in how we get in and out and work around our construction team.

Here is your one-stop-shop for updates on how the construction is going, what’s next, and what you need to know.

We thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation while we work to create a more warm and welcoming entry point to our community.

Here’s what you need to know:


***PLEASE NOTE:*** On Tuesday, March 26, the main elevator on the southern side will be shut down from 10:00 AM to approximately 12:00 noon. The courtyard (northern) elevator will be operational during this time. Please follow the instructions of our security team to get where you need to go. Thank you!

As you visit the building, you can see that we are now in the thick of the lobby remodel. The stairway pillar is being dismantled and out of all the things we are doing the removal of that massive column might be the biggest structural change.

While this is a noisy time, it is also a time of wonder as we all get a once-in-a-lifetime glance at the shul behind the walls, built by workers who have long ago passed into memory.

Thank you for your continued patience.
