…שהחיינו

We are delighted to announce, that we will be davening this evening in the newly renovated Sanctuary! The Shul has a beautiful new look. See the pictures here: 1, 2, 3, 4.

It was very memorable to see how immediately after Havdalah, at the end of Pesach, we were already transitioning from the old to the new, with the removal of the Siddurim & Chumashim to make way for the new carpeting and seating. It was a remarkable sight to see the impressive coordination; as the last bit of carpeting was being laid, the new seats were already being brought in.

We express our utmost gratitude to all the generous donors, a list of whom can be found below. Also, we thank Simon Katz, Jeremy Hull & Saar Alkobi, for their help in overseeing the project from start to finish. In addition, we thank Saar Alkobi, Rick Bentley, Matt Hildebrand, Jeremy Hull, Israel Keisari, Miles Kerr-Jarrett, Chaim Winter, Shoshi Yaari & Michael Zelikovich for their volunteer efforts.

If you have not yet pledged, it is not too late to become a part of this historical project, as we still owe approximately $40,000. A graph depicting the fundraising project is pictured here.

We hope that the new look & ambiance that has been created will inspire all of us to meaningful services, and that the Almighty will receive favorably all our worthy prayers.
