Join us on August 24, 2017 for the Brown Bag Lunch Tour of the new Jewish Community Center located at the Jewish Community Alliance of Southern Maine at 1342 Congress Street in Portland, Maine.
The Jewish Community Alliance of Southern Maine to recently moved into their new 19,300 s.f. Jewish Community Center. The building was constructed on the former St. Patrick’s church site.
Demolition of the former facility began in November of 2015 with corner stones being saved and given back to the former parishioners along with a time capsule that was unearthed during the demolition process.
The building houses three separate functions: a preschool featuring toddler facilities, with before-and-after school programs and summer camps; staff offices; and community meeting and recreation spaces, as well as two kitchens (standard and Kosher Kitchen). A 50-space parking lot is included on the site.
The new community center includes numerous high-end finishes with wood paneling, cabinets and rulon wood ceilings. Along with the high-end finishes, the new center includes a state-of-the-art security system, fully air conditioned with radiant heat, and an elaborate playground feature.
