DAVID R. KAHN JEWISH COMMUNITY CAMPUS
We're building a vibrant campus for a growing Jewish community. Our newly renovated Campus reflects the growing richness of Jewish life in the Greater Raleigh area.
These are exciting times for the David R. Kahn Jewish Community Campus as we embark on a new chapter that will strengthen our community for generations to come. Visionaries of a Jewish Community Campus first purchased land for our campus over 25 years ago, at the corner of Norwood and Old Creedmoor Roads. Thanks to the thoughtful contributions of these families and other funding, we are now moving forward to create new and refreshed open spaces and facilities to serve our many programs for our entire Jewish community.
If you haven’t seen the Campus in a while, you haven’t seen the Campus at all! We already have state-of-the-art tree climbing, pristine pool, a thriving JCC, and unique specialty summer camps. And now, our Campus is expanding to reflect the growing richness of Jewish life in the Greater Raleigh area.
Construction crews have completed laying 2,000 feet of storm pipes and 400 feet of utility pipes— that’s about 8 football fields of underground pipes! We now have a high-tech, environmentally-friendly system that delivers water from the Campus pond to the new athletic fields. The entire irrigation system is powered from a new electrical system based in the old well house. Irrigation and seeding for two new athletic fields are complete. Environmental initiatives, like bio-cells to prevent erosion, are also complete. Beautification is underway with the plantings of trees and shrubs.
In coming months, our athletic fields and sports arena will be ready for action. Each competition-quality athletic field measures 50,000 square - that's a total of 2 1/2 acres of state-of-the art playing fields. Our deluxe covered sports arena will feature two full-sized basketball courts surrounded by various smaller court games. Courts will also be used for tennis, volleyball and pickleball and will have bleacher seating, bathrooms and climate control with cooling fans.
Future plans for our Campus include the Israel Center, pristine office space, meetings rooms, and convening spaces for large and small events, lectures, movies, and conference meetings.We're also looking forward to planting a sustainable Pearl Garden, and constructing PJ Library little free libraries and installing a bevy of sitting benches to relax in overlooking the water. For each piece that is constructed, there are meaningful building and naming opportunities.
You won’t believe your eyes, so come and visit us—we have monthly tours. The Kahn Campus is creating the environment of a Jewish neighborhood where Jews of all ages, affiliations, and beliefs can enhance the quality of their lives through educational, recreational and social experiences. Why not take a look and see the future of our Jewish Community as it is being built. Questions? Contact us!
