Mayanot World Center: Fire Safety and our Newest Installations

Since our last update, we have moved forward in several respects, working on the entrance floor and the upper floor furniture installation. The security system, and sprinkler system have all been installed and tested. The beautiful outdoor windows are in, window bars put in, interior doors installed, closets are being put together, the toilets are ready for use, as well as the air conditioning and elevators.

The pictures below show the initial process as the installation is currently happening. Mayanot also made the executive decision, for safety reasons, to have on reserve a water cistern for the indoor water sprinklers. We are almost finished building this large structure on the back right outer side of the building. As safety has always been one of Mayanot's number one priorities, we thought it was worth the extra time

We know that Torah is relevant for all Jews at every level of learning and so too at every age. Students have come from Virginia, Michigan, California, the United Kingdom and even Hungary to gain both in self discovery and personal and spiritual growth. Regardless of the ages of students in the Executive Learning program (ranging from 35 to 70) they have integrated immeasurably with our main program, both the men's and women's students have seen some amazing additions come through this year.  Executive learning program director, Rabbi Yossi Shemtov shared, "We have seen imme
