Shaarey Zedek renovation update

In the most recent update regarding the ongoing renovation of the synagogue, which was emailed to members of Shaarey Zedek Congregation on December 16, it was reported that “Building Project Phase I involving the demolition and asbestos remediation of the project spaces is complete. Work can soon begin on roof renovations and the installation of the HVAC system.” 
As far as the capital campaign goes, the report noted that ”we are very pleased to report that we have crossed the $7 million mark in the L’Dor Va Dor capital campaign! This, combined with Shaarey Zedek’s contribution of $3 million, brings us to over $10.9 million toward our ultimate goal.”
Finally, it was revealed that the Board is now exploring the idea of locating a daycare in the building once renovations are completed. Here is what the report advised: 
“The Board has struck a subcommittee to explore the feasibility of operating a daycare at the synagogue to better serve the childcare needs of the Congregation and the broader Jewish community. As part of this exploration, the subcommittee is determining whether or not to proceed with a public or private daycare model. The Board will be making a final decision shortly, but the space requirements and number of children that we forecasted to accommodate will remain approximately the same regardless of the decision to proceed with a public or private daycare option.”
