AFTER more than 25 years on the corner of E. Hampden Ave. and S. Glencoe St., Temple Sinai members are building for the future.
The temple’s building committee conducted a comprehensive analysis to determine the needs of its community. The resulting preliminary plans include a new school building, a new chapel and renovations to the current sanctuary and main building.
Because renovating its current school would cost more than building a new one, plans include constructing a new school building on the west side of the property. This also means that there will be no downtime for the preschool or the religious school because the new school will be completed before the closing of the old school building.
“We invested a lot of research into our options for renovating the old school building,” said Rabbi Richard Rheins.
