Be Part of Our 20/20 Vision Today!

Our 20/20 project is an exciting endeavor to reinvigorate the Temple Emanu-El campus that reflects our commitment to the future while staying true to our past. This $4.20 million renovation will include new Sanctuary seating and flooring, a complete facelift of the exterior façade, new hardscape and softscape surrounding the exterior and inner courtyard – areas that have been significantly untouched since originally built in 1954.  In addition to the aesthetic updates to our campus and enhancements to various spaces creating increased utilization and flexibility, several safety and security upgrades will also be made.

  1. What specific infrastructure improvements does the 20/20 Vision Project include?
  • Renovation of the Temple’s exterior façade including hardscape and softscape along both University Ave. and Myrtle St.
  • New hardscape and softscape in the Temple courtyard.
  • New Sanctuary seating and flooring.
  1. Have significant renovations been done in these areas before, and if yes, when?
    • The exterior façade has been largely untouched since completed in 1954.
    • The cement patio in the courtyard was poured in the early 1970’s.  Only minimal work has been done to the softscape in the past few decades.
    • The current Sanctuary seats have been recovered in previous renovations but are still the original seats dating back to 1948.
