Now a little over two weeks into the sanctuary renovation, the demolition and preparations for the new design continues. Base-boarding and flooring in the sanctuary and social hall have been removed, as has the retractable wall separating the social hall from the foyer. The removal of some pieces of the bimah concrete has begun to prepare the bimah for its new accessible ramp and extension.
On Monday, May 10, work will begin on the Sanctuary Phase 1 Project. We are excited for congregants to return in the fall (health conditions permitting) to a refreshed sanctuary and social hall with comfortable, flexible seating; a more accessible bimah; new restrooms; vastly improved lighting; and state-of-the-art audio-visual systems. Construction will take place weekdays from 7am to 3pm, with the noisiest part of the project taking place in the next several weeks. We are coordinating closely with any activities scheduled in and around the building to ensure a safe and secure environment. We will share updates on the construction here and look forward to inaugurating the space in the fall!
