Silver Lake Jewish Community Center Getting an Upgrade

New, 4 comments

Just south of Sunset in Silver Lake and next to the frightening (and supposed to be demo'd) Bates Motel is the little brick Silver Lake Independent Jewish Community Center, a building that's seen better days. In a profile on Hyperion Ave.-based architect Michael Lehrer, The Jewish Journal reports that Lehrer is in the early stages of a renovation of the 1951 structure (what a mensch!). "What was the front door now looks more like a fire exit, and the main entrance from the parking lot around back is uninspiring," writes the Journal. Lehrer is also behind Jewish Center redesigns in Malibu and the Westside. And he is indeed married to landscape architect Mia Lehrer.
