House & Grounds

The House & Grounds team is responsible for the building and grounds of Temple Emanuel, determining how to best enable the spiritual, educational, cultural, social needs, and activities of our congregation.

The team oversees regular maintenance and upkeep of the Temple building and grounds, and ensures that the property remains presentable and in good working order. It inspects the Temple building and grounds and presents to the Board the estimated cost of any needed repairs or improvements, and upon Board approval, gets contracts for and oversees execution of such work.

Much has been accomplished this past year. Among them:

  • Repaired stairwell
  • Front entrance concrete patio and steps replacement
  • Repaired drywall from water damage to WRJ room; added paint and cleaned carpet
  • Carpet replaced in two offices, along with new paint
  • Expanded SHIM Community Garden
