What's been happening in July

July has been an extremely busy month at Chabad.
Sorry for not posting regularly as we were very busy with Camp Gan Israel.

See here for pictures of July's activity.

Come tour the new building

Thanks to Frank, we invite you to join us for a virtual video tour of the upper & lower levels. At this stage you can already see where many of the internal walls are going to be. Walk through the Pre-school, mikva and Youth recreation hall. See the school classrooms, offices, mezzanine, and even peer down into the main auditorium. From this videowe can begin to get an idea of how the finished building will look.

Progress report

At this point we are ahead of schedule by several weeks, thanks to the great weather. If this continues, we should finish the roof and windows by the end of June. After this it is not long until the siding will be installed thereby fully enclosing the structure to allow progress to continue regardless of inclement weather.

These steel decking sheets will have concrete poured onto them to create the floor of the upper level.

What's going on in the Lower Level?

Wondering what is happening underground while our attention is on the rapid erection of the steel frame?

Frank says "Keep Shabbos"

Don't miss this sign as you put on your hard hat, safety vest and steel toed boots, and prepare to work on the new Jewish Learning Centre.

Hey kids, Can you figure this out?

Look at these pictures of the basement walls. You can see the wood coming down revealing the concrete walls of the basement.

Can you figure out how we plan to get the tractors out of the basement? (You can use the comment feature to let us know your suggestions.)
Well, the answer has been posted,
