1) We started to build!

ברוך שהחיינו וקיימנו והגיענו לזמן הזה!

We are so happy to inform our friends and supporters, that at long last, after so many delays, we started (today) to build our new building!

The work on the first stage should take approx. a month and a half (the time of the vacation in the Kindergartens located besides and beneath the shul), and when the school year starts we will pause with the building, and raise the funds for the next stages. See this page for pictures.

Now is the time to thank all of our donors for their support, which helped us get to this happy day. All donations to KAYJ are tax deductible in the USA and in Israel, and can be done via the site ( or by check.

We request all of our friends and supporters to heed the call and help uplift this house of Hashem! (Dedication opportunities are available in our site).

1) Final Plans, and Starting to Build:

As mentioned in the previous newsletter, we finally got the building permit.  Until very recently, the contract with the Municipality encouraged us to construct the structure of the building in one stage, by means of a significant penalty if the building is constructed in multiple stages.  However, in the last meeting we had with the Municipality, an option to build in multiple stages without a significant penalty was arranged.  Immediately afterwards, the building committee met with all the relevant specialists in order to finalize the building plans.  It was decided that the actual building will start July 1, in 2 1/2 months, and all preparations will be finished by then.  The specialists assured us that the proposed schedule is reasonable, so we should be able to start by the aforementioned date, IYH.

The entire building will be almost 1200 square meters, and the total cost of the building is approximately two million dollars.  When it is finished, it will be a beautiful and impressive edifice, seen from much of the city of Jerusalem.

We have several dedication opportunities available (Le'ilui Nishmas, etc.) as listed in The overall building is still available for dedication, and the donor who contributes the amount requested will have the opportunity to name this beautiful building after whomever he would like to commemorate.  We would be happy to send pictures as the building progresses.

We request all of our friends and supporters to heed the call and help uplift this house of Hashem.
