Moving forward with Sherman Campus Phase 2
On March 20, 2015, the UJA Federation Board of Directors unanimously approved the plan to launch the Sherman Campus Phase 2 Campaign. This decision means that we are ready to move forward with the development of the next phase, which will complete construction of Sherman Campus and the Prosserman JCC on Bathurst Street, north of Sheppard Avenue.
To raise the required funds for this historic infrastructure project, over the next two years, Fred Waks will lead a fundraising campaign, along with a dynamic committee comprised of our city’s most dedicated leaders. Fred aims to raise the balance of $48 million needed for Phase 2, which will enable ground-breaking in the near future.
65,000 Jews make up the Sherman Campus catchment area - that is 20% of the entire Jewish population of Canada. A Community Centre in this area - where families, seniors and children enjoy programs and quality time while embracing Jewish values - is vital for the future of our community.
“Today, this big idea of building for the next generation is more relevant than ever,” explains Waks. “We want to ensure that our children and grandchildren have a community they can be proud of, one that supports diversity and nurtures a deep Jewish identity.”
