Our exciting renovations

Temple Shalom is entering a new phase of excitement due to the renovations of our Sanctuary and social hall. We are very close to our goal of raising $5 million for the effort. Please consider making a donation or increasing your gift to the capital campaign.

Temple Shalom renovations - week of Sept. 15

This was a tremendously important week in the renovation of Temple Shalom. Artists Michelle and David Plachte-Zuieback came from California in their pick-up truck with the simply stunning glass doors for the ark and installed them. Crews were also fast at work on installing the beautiful Tree of Life plaques, doors on the Temple Street entrance, painting and almost finishing the bathrooms. We will be ready for Rosh Hashanah and can't wait.

The pace of work quickened dramatically this week on the Temple renovation project. Carpeting was put down in both the sanctuary and social hall. The ark was installed with all of its curves while the lattice work was completed. The entranceway is now tiled. The bathrooms neared completion as well. We're moving full speed ahead.
