Construction Update  - April 2018
 
 
Members of the Board of Directors of the Jewish Community Alliance and JCA Staff toured the Friedman Center for Jewish Life on March 20. Despite the chill, the group was all smiles at the great progress of the building. They saw where the multi-basketball court gymnasium will go, the fitness center, the locker rooms, the state of the art steam room, the administrative offices, the Early Childhood Center and outdoor playground, the kitchens, the tallis-weaving room, and the rental site.

Construction Continues on the FRIEDMAN CENTER FOR JEWISH LIFE

January, 2018

FC4JL roof 2
The new roof has been installed on the Friedman Center for Jewish Life at 613 Third Avenue in Kingston. This investment in our future will prevent the deterioration of the building and has been funded by the state of Pennsylvania through an LSA Grant.
Construction Manager Bob Becker states, "I'm impressed with the speed that this new roof was built and the quality of the construction. It includes 19 skylights and will serve the Jewish community for many years to come."
Check out these photos and video of the new roof!
The next phase of the project includes resurfacing the facade, and installing a state-of-the-art LED sign along Third Avenue. We hope this phase of the project will be completed this spring and interior work will commence following that.
Our construction bridge loan was approved thanks to First National Bank of Pennsylvania. We have meetings scheduled with foundations in the coming months as part of the second phase of our Capital Campaign. We hope our community, alumni, and friends will support this exciting project.
