Press coverage of the event

Tall wood-frame buildings are at the forefront of current architectural, developer, and city planning discussions around the world. See the buzz gathered around Kehilla’s event as part of the greater conversation on this innovative endeavour.

On September 27th, 2018, Kehilla hosted Tall Timber: What's the Word on Wood? at the Kiever Shul in Toronto.
