It is just amazing how long it can take in Eretz Yisroel to finish a project.

The best part is knowing that it could have been finished in way less than a year.

I dont know but if anyone passes buy you can see there are not finished the outside and the inside is not even started yet... So Nov is a little bit difficult to believe... IMHO
What are you talking about?
I was inside and plenty of rooms and stuff are plenty finished!
They say tey will actually be done most if the construction and enough to open in time for succos but want a "practice" month and def don't want that over succas...

Passed it by the other day, and unfortunately I would have to agree with you.

It still looks like they have a LOOONNGGG way to go and not going to be finished anytime SOON.
