Exterior Restoration of the Sanctuary Building is Underway

If you have visited Kane Street recently, you have likely noticed that the exterior of the sanctuary building looks quite different. Scaffolding now encircles both the east and west towers and covers the north (Kane Street) façade, reaching up past the roofline. This exciting milestone represents the commencement of restoration work on the building exterior. It marks the final phase of a process that Kane Street launched several years ago, when we started to take steps to ensure the physical integrity and historic character of the sanctuary exterior.
Details of these new developments are outlined in our January 2017 Update. We encourage members to continue to provide feedback by writing to
