Our new building
In 2022, the first Jewish Community Center and Synagogue in the Wood River Valley is projected to open its doors.
With more than a dozen religious organizations having their own permanent home, the WRJC’s new building at 95 Badeyana will provide a warm, inviting home for the entire community in Sun Valley.

Our community has raised over $2M during the past 18 months, amplifying the significance of this project and demonstrating the Jewish people’s resilience during challenging times.
As of February 11, 2022, we have selected a contractor: Conrad Brothers Construction (Ketchum-based). Work is scheduled to start on Monday, February 14.
Today, our architect Daniel Hollis and his firm HR Architects have completed their design work. We hop you agree that they have developed an exceptional concept for changing our grocery-store building into a wonderful new home for both worship and community gatherings. Joining Daniel and his team is the Chicago-based architectural team of Marc Trudeau and Patricia Pavlecic. Marc and Patti will be working with us to create a sense of Judaica and flexibility for meetings, celebrations, events, and worship space.
As many of us can see driving through town or watching the ski lines weave across Baldy, it is clear that hundreds of new residents are here in the Wood River Valley, and we encourage you to reach out to your friends and new neighbors who are Jewish and encourage them to join the WRJC. We encourage you and thank you in advance for considering a donation or continuing to donate to this campaign at any amount that you are comfortable with giving. As we reach and surpass our original $1.75M goal, we will continue to fundraise for construction costs and to grow the WRJC Sustainability Fund.
