While the finishing touches of the long-awaited Barnet and Annette Ostrow Early Childhood and Lifelong Learning Center are added, Temple Beth Sholom of Roslyn Heights is getting ready to open its doors. The ribbon cutting is scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 8 at 6:00 p.m. The grand opening is Wednesday, Sept. 9.
The new educational facility is architecturally beautiful as well as environmentally conscious. Not only are skylights and large spans of windows installed to make use of natural light, but toxic-free carpet, flooring, and paint has also been used to reduce emissions. The result is a beautiful cutting-edge educational facility that promises to enlighten our learners from preschool age into their adult years.
“‘Mah tovu ohalecha yaakov...How beautiful are your tents ‘O Jacob, your dwelling places ‘O Israel.’ Our new Early Childhood and Lifelong Learning Center is indeed beautiful; state of the art!” said Senior Rabbi Alan B. Lucas. “But even more remarkable is the program and the people who teach in it and the community it has attracted. We hope you will join us for our dedication, and celebrate with us the very special place we have created at Beth Sholom.”
The community is welcome to attend the exciting ribbon-cutting ceremony, which will also host New York State Senator Craig Johnson and East Hills Mayor Michael Koblenz.
