While all eyes have been on the Wellesley High School and former Grossman’s/soon-to-be Waterstone at Wellesley construction projects in recent months, Temple Beth Elohim on Bethel Rd. off of Cedar Street has quietly been building a new Makom (home) — a many-windowed, eco-friendly facility that’s set to have a dedication next month and a public open house in the spring.
The Temple has been bursting at the seams, supporting more than 900 families, including hundreds of children. The new building will cost an estimated $25M and at more than 42K sq. ft., will roughly double the size of the current temple.
WellesleyWeston Magazine features an article in its Winter edition that goes into some more detail on the project.
