After starting construction only a few months ago, the Shalom Austin Jewish Community Center has made much progress on their new facilities as part of the Generations capital campaign for which the Austin community raised $25 million. Despite minor supply chain delays, Shalom Austin continues to make strides toward completing the first phase of construction and opening the new Rochelle & Stanley Ferdman Family Aquatic Center and the Hurt Family Tennis Center.
