Building For the Next Generation

Congregation Beth Abraham-Jacob’s building was constructed in 1990 and has served the congregation well during the past 25 years. Our vision is to reinvest in the building, focusing on infrastructure, functionality, and appearance. This investment will help us sustain the congregation’s mission by addressing our building’s efficiency, safety, security and accessibility. The design will also make our physical spaces as inviting as our members, as uplifting as our religious services, yet modest in appearance and budget.

Major Project Components

  • Sanctuary remodeling including new mechitzas, social hall divider and accessibility improvements, improved lighting, etc.
