OUR NEW BUILDING
The new spiritual home of Kol Dorot is at 660 Kinderkamack Road. See below for the progress we're making as we convert the space from an office building to an early learning center, a religious school, a house of worship, and a community space.
May 2021 - It's Time to Unpack!
The building's interior work is complete, and the parking lot and exterior are now the focus. We're also beginning the challenging task of unpacking, organizing, and setting up offices, classrooms, and spiritual spaces. Thank you to all our volunteers!
November 2020 - Book Your Tour Today!
We're already leading building tours, so fill out the shulcloud form and book your tour today! In the meantime, here are the latest pictures including our new sign on Kinderkamack Rd., the preschool playset, views from our entrance, offices, and the newly installed stained glass adorning our "lounge".
July - September 2020 - On Our Way
The scaffolds have come off the building's exterior, and a warm shade of blue paint has been applied throughout much of the interior. Actually, the paint is so fresh that there's still protective plastic over the windows. We've begun tiling the bathrooms ... and the bricks arrived. So yes, we're definitely on our way!
This update we're getting ready for our windows ... A big window will light up our stairwell, Cantor Sarah will have a view of the activity throughout the area, and the glass vestibule entryway will be spectacular in daylight, dusk or evening ... We're looking forward to the glass being installed later this month!
June 2020 - Letting in the Light
May 2020 - Welcome to 660
Welcome. If you choose to enter our building at the the top of the driveway you'll be met by our multi-use library and meeting area. We'll even have a coffee bar! And if you're here while your kids are at religious school or the ELC, catch up with other parents or enjoy the high speed wifi. Pictures at the end of the gallery show the latest exterior work being done on the building. However, there's more work to be done, so stay tuned!
April 2020 - Blue Skies and Scaffolding
Work continued in April along the exterior of the building (photos 1 and 2), and completed the walls of the elevator (photo 3).
March 2020 - Things are Taking Shape
Consecutive days of clear beautiful weather allowed work to be done on the exterior of 660, including the walls of the elevator (photo 1), steel framing for what will become the main vestibule (photo 2), the windows of the sanctuary (photo 3), and an interior space.
Work continued inside the existing space with a new window for the Early Learning Center's gym (pic 1) and a wall in the ELC (pic 2). Outside, the footings and foundations have been set for the back staircase (3 and 4), and front elevator/glass vestibule (5 and 5.)
February 2020 - New Sights; Inside and Out
January 2020 - It's Been a Busy New Year
Each day brings exciting progress. This week's focus: more wiring and plumbing, building out classrooms and other spaces and working on flooring and finishes.
As we celebrate night 8 of this year's Festival of Lights, at least that many electricians, along with plumbers, have been hard at work on our space this week. These pictures show what will become our large entryway, as well as classrooms in our preschool. Chag Sameach!
Chanukah (December) 2019 - Electric, Plumbing, & HVAC
