Greater Newark Conservancy City Bloom Newsletter
An anonymous, longtime valued supporter and donor recently awarded Greater Newark Conservancy with a $2 million challenge grant to launch the Conservancy’s new $6 million Campaign for the Building.

Renovations to this historic building, once home to Oheb Shalom Congregation, Adas Israel and Mishnayes and later MetropolitanBaptist Church, will allow us to increase our year round programming for children and adults in urban communities. The renovated building will include classrooms, a lecture hall, exhibit space and an educational kitchen.
