However, this isn't your ordinary townhouse renovation.
Here's the mission statement from the Brownstone website:
The Brownstone’s mission is to use NYC as an experiential classroom to strengthen Jewish identity and peoplehood, foster community development and cultivate the next generation of leaders to ensure Jewish continuity for American Jews.
The Brownstone building, located in the heart of New York’s East Village, will be a hub of dynamic and engaging immersion learning programs for the local community and for collegiates and young adults from across the United States and abroad.
The six-story Brownstone will feature: tastefully appointed meeting rooms, classrooms, a spacious auditorium, library, sleeping accommodations, offices, lounge, dining hall and kitchen, as well as a garden and a rooftop terrace.
