Construction on Phase 2 is moving full steam ahead!

February 7, 2012 / 14 Shevat 5772

Outside, you may have noticed that the new library addition is now wrapped in blue. This is a sign that masonry will be starting soon. Meanwhile, crews have been working on the roof and preparing the entrance awning.

Inside, rooms have largely been framed in. HVAC and wiring is underway. Today, workers are laying tile to renovate the two bathrooms by the entrance.

We are excited that furniture has been ordered as have new banquet chairs for the social hall.

Finally, this past week, Gil Mann and Rabbi Davis got a sneak preview of stained glass from the Penn Ave building that is being renovated for the new space. This lovely window will link the buildings and the generations together.

Pardon Our Dust

As the crew begins the dismantling of the façade of Beth El, please note that the main entrance is now inaccessible. Use the 26th Street Entrance (The chapel door is still accessible for minyan). We ask that you reserve the closest parking spaces for those in need of the accessibility and also keep a close eye on your curious little ones! If you should need extra help, please call the facilities office at 952-873-7308 at least 48 hours prior so that we can have help available for you.

The Changing Look of Beth El!

October 25, 2011 / 27 Tishrei 5772
Construction happening at Beth El

The foundation for our phase 2 additions has now been completed. The wall has been cut for the new side entrance. Extensive renovations have also begun in the choir loft, coat room and chapel bathrooms. Plumbing and electrical work are well underway, and a special restoration project has begun which will be revealed at a later time. Also during this time, we are working to update our sound system. During this time, we apologize but our hearing devices will not work. We appreciate your patience as we work to make everything sound “crystal clear!”

Historic Dedication & Groundbreaking

August 30, 2011 / 30 Av 5771

Phase 1 Dedication!

On August 29, 2011, amid the popular End-of-Summer Beth El picnic, Beth El’s new addition and renovated interior were dedicated with a special ribbon cutting and mezuzah hanging ceremony. Those in attendance included members of the construction and building committees, the board, donors, synagogue staff, representatives from the architects and building crew and, of course, hundreds of jubilant picnickers.

Phase 2 Groundbreaking!

Once the last nail was tapped into the newly dedicated mezuzah to adorn the new 26th Street Entrance, the crowd shifted to the front of the building. There, at the foot of the Ten Commandments sculpture, golden shovels and hard hats were waiting for the next “phase” of the ceremony – the groundbreaking for Phase Two! Construction is expected to begin in the coming weeks on an a beautiful education center which will grace the front of our shul! Stay tuned!
