This project consists of an approximately 15,000 square foot addition to the existing 3 story Jewish Studies Center at the corner of Wentworth Street and Glebe Street, on the southern edge of the College of Charleston campus. The 3 story addition will be in character with the existing building and in context with the surrounding neighborhood.  The site for the addition, immediately adjacent to the existing Jewish Studies Center included a 1-story non-descript, post 1955 building and surface parking.  The existing 1-story building was demolished, and existing underground campus utilities were relocated.  The first floor was elevated to above flood plane, and matches the existing Jewish Studies Center floor height.  The first level consists of a dining facility, serving vegan , vegetarian, fish and Kosher foods.  The second and third floors provides classroom space for the College.  The site will allow for up to six classrooms, two offices, and support spaces.  


The Dr. Martin Perlmutter Dining Hall, 'Marty's Place', opened in January 2016.  It is under the supervision of the Kosher Commission of Charleston (KCC) and operated by Aramark, the dining hall accepts the studen meal plan, dining dollars, as well as cash and credit transactions, and is open to the wider Charleston community for dine-in or take-out.
