Daily Shul Renovation FAQ

Q. Why are we doing this - the Daily Shul is perfectly fine the way it is!?

The Daily Shul is the-most used space in the building and is visited by hundreds daily. In fact, it is likely the most-used Jewish prayer space in the State of Georgia. The current space has served us very well over the decades but is in need of a face-lift to make the room brighter, fresher, and more efficient for its users.

Q. What exactly is planned for this renovation?

This relatively minor renovation will dramatically alter the “feel” of the space. The carpeting will be replaced, the fixed pews will be replaced with movable chairs, the walls will be painted a light color, tables will be available in part of the room, bookshelves in the side room will become more accessible for usage, remaining wooden finishes will be stained, lighting will be upgraded, the ceiling will be modernized, and additional mechitza panels will be installed to provide more space for women.

Q. Why are we removing the pews - they add so much character to the room?

While we also have nostalgic feelings for the fixed pews, they are often the reason there is inadequate seating in the Daily Shul. The way they are configured results in fewer people being able to be seated at any given time, and having individual chairs will allow aisles to be designed in a more efficient way to maximize the space. We anticipate being able to fit as many as 100 seats, depending on the final configuration. Additionally, the goal is also to add tables to some of the room which will enhance the davening and learning experience for many.

Q. Who is the committee responsible for executing this renovation?

Building Trustee Yonasan Gavant and Treasurer Nachi Friedman (who is also the Gabbai for the 9am Shabbos Minyan) assembled a diverse committee of men and women of all ages who have looked at this issue, including several who work professionally in building and interior design who generously lent their expertise to this project.

Q. When will construction actually begin?

The committee has already done virtually all of the legwork to select the various components and their details. We anticipate that the work will take place between Purim and Pesach.
