Plans to Construct the Lenox Jewish Center are Underway

July 24, 2019

Lenox Jewish Center

5-0 across the Lenox Zoning Board of Appeals! Chabad of the Berkshires, an orthodox synagogue based on South Street in Pittsfield, gained approval to construct a new Jewish Center in Lenox after gaining a special permit for the front parking plan which acknowledges the religious and educational uses of the facility.

LENOX — Chabad of the Berkshires, an orthodox synagogue based on South Street in Pittsfield, will construct a modern center in Lenox, but only after removing a historic house that some feel should be preserved.

The group won backing this week from the Lenox Zoning Board of Appeals. Several residents told the board they support the project, while others questioned the need to tear down an 1862 house — it was named Cozy Nook when built as a residence by the Tucker family — regardless of its condition.

The project would demolish the decrepit but historic property at 17 West St. in the 1-acre residential zone near downtown.

The Lenox Jewish Center plans to offer services and educational programs and will include a residence for Rabbi Levi Volovik, his wife, Sara, and their seven children.

We are all MAKERS with the power to build resilient communities.

Our team had a wonderful time participating in Yo-Yo Ma’s “Day of Action”, where teams of local businesses and organizations united under a single tent to build tables for the community.  The tables are made from local ash trees and inscribed with local responses that complete the phrase “The Berkshires make...”. #yoyoma #dayofaction #community #intheberkshires
Earlier this week we celebrated the completion of Berkshire Place’s new independent living community, known as 89 South. #intheberkshires

Allegrone Companies provided design-build services for the three-story, Richardsonian Romanesque building located in the heart of Pittsfield. The new space houses 18 living units, primarily one- and two-bedroom setups, all of which express the 21st century historic character and new-age transitional design while offering the latest technologies.  #historic #seniorlivingcommunity
