The ceremony yesterday was pretty interesting and for someone who isn’t literally a part of the Jewish community, I was happy to be there and witness the fellowship. It took a lot of commitment, dedication and involvement to get this done. Most of the people who worked on this project donated their time and resources, from our office all the way to the contractor (Mark Albert with ArtHouse Homes) who built the project without a contracting fee.
The scale of the project went through several revisions to find a construction budget point that intersected with the amount of private funding available and the project is not as grand as was once originally intended. All that aside, I think everyone is very happy with it. I have posted some before and after photos up above.
Thanks to those who came out.
