Our Beis Medrash has been greatly enhanced with a gorgeous, new Aron Kodesh!
The Aron Kodesh was sponsored by the Rubenstein family in memory of their parents, Moshe ben Yaakov, z”l & Chana bas Mordechai, a”h, Rubenstein. The Aron was designed by Bittan Fine Art.
Construction is nearing completion on our new Boys Division Recreation area.
Here is a short tour of the grounds:
The volleyball court is at the back of the new Recreation Area (the brown colored cement is the running track that surrounds the entire area).
In between the volleyball court and the basketball court is the picnic area. We still need delivery of the picnic tables and chairs.
The basketball court comes next. We are still waiting for benches and two sets of bleachers.
At the very front of the Recreation Area is the workout space. We are installing 15 pieces of workout equipment similar to the ones found at LA parks.
There is still street and sidewalk work that needs to be done at the front of the property. Hopefully, you will be receiving an invitation for ethics’s grand opening very soon.
Valley Torah is going green. The #LADWP is working in both campuses today to replace all our lights with LED bulbs. Thank you #LADWP for sponsoring this savings and Earth friendliness for us!
Construction of our new recreation area has been moving at a fast pace. Over the last few weeks, the workers have been preparing the area and constructing the forms to pour the concrete.
They beginning pouring the concrete tomorrow (Friday)!
Here is a time-lapse video that shows you the work they have been doing.
Here are two pictures of the future basketball court.
And, here is a picture of the future volleyball court in the back of the property.
The construction crew has started grading and compacting the soil. You can already start to get an idea of how things will look. It’s time for a virtual tour.
View From the School Parking LotIn the foreground (on the left) is the area for the volleyball court. The mound of dirt is where the grassy “chilling” area will be. In the background, you can see where the basketball court will be located.
Here you can get a better view of the basketball court area.
View From Whitsett
You are looking from just on the other side of where the sidewalk will be. You can see the basketball court and the running track on either side of the mound. The track will go around the whole recreation area.
View From Back of Lot (Towards Whitsett)
Here is a better view of the volleyball court and the running track on either side. On the left, you can see the poles for the fence are already installed.
We are, literally, moving the earth to construct our new recreation area for our Boys Division. Stay tuned for a virtual tour of the construction site.
It may not be the Berlin Wall, but it is a significant start to our building project. The wall between the Boys Division parking lot and the soon-to-be New Recreation Area is being taken down today. A temporary construction fence will be installed next.
Work has begun on the Recreation Area at the Boys Division!! The trees were all cleared out of the lot. Next step: grading (not the A-, B+ kind of grading; removing and straightening out the dirt).
