ESA’s phased masterplan Temple Jeremiah calls for a major overhaul of the building’s interior, upgrading all life safety and code requirements, and reorganizing the site for better traffic management.


For Phase I, the site was redesigned to improve traffic circulation, increase parking to 300 cars, and provide on-site storm water detention. Building systems were upgraded to increase energy efficiency and meet code, life safety, and ADA standards.


The interior was completely rebuilt. A 7,500 sf addition created a new school entry with an elevator and five new preschool classrooms. Administration offices were relocated to increase security.

Phase II, a complete renovation of the sanctuary and social hall is currently under construction.
