Dylan Cromer, Michael Luney, Matthew Peek, Mike Seils, Eric Wetherill


The Agudas Israel Synagogue was built through the determined hard work and time its many passionate members. In this simulation, step into management shoes, and actively raise funds for the construction of the synagogue. As you explore, depictions of real events will appear. Read real world documents to garner hints about the best way to tackle problems. Be aware that decisions result in different outcomes (notably, different amounts of funds raised). throughout the experience different characters may join you and aid in raising funds through donating or completing tasks and providing supplies. Upon raising the required funds, the synagogue is constructed you are presented an evaluation on how quickly you accomplished the project.
