After receiving our temporary occupancy permit on February 20, the Construction Team and our consultants worked tirelessly to prepare the building for move-in and occupancy. Many volunteers helped clean, move, and unpack, and attend to projects large and small to make the space ready for our first worship service on March 15.
Work continues to address the remaining items on the construction punch list, and there are a few minor tasks needed in order to receive our permanent occupancy permit, which we expect to have received by the end of March. The Construction Team is deeply grateful to our consultants Naomi Weinstein and Vince Pilotti, and the many volunteers who offered their time, talent and treasure to create a beautiful and functional sacred space.
On March 15, we welcomed the congregation and many visitors to our new home for worship and mission. The new building, so recently full of tools and the noise of construction, is now full of light and community and the sound of joy and song.
