Renovation/Rededication Project Update

We received bids from four companies with expertise in the type of exterior renovation work we are going to do. Our project management consultants (Artisan Partners) evaluated the bids and the details of the proposals and have had extensive discussions with two of the bidders. We are preparing to bring a recommendation to the YISE Board for one of these companies. The bid is within our budget for this portion of the project (complete exterior renovation). We hope to be able to actually get started with removal of the old exterior early in June and complete this work within two months. We are moving forward on repairs to the door/door frame in the social hall as well.

For those of you who have made multi-year pledges, please consider making your next payment now. Those who have not yet made a donation or pledge, please join in this project. Klal Yisrael contributed the Machtzeis Hashekel. We would like everyone to participate at whatever level they possibly can. The more we raise, the more we can do of the necessary repairs to the building. Now is the time!
