Philanthropist Ronald Perelman is donating $6 million for the construction of a Center for Jewish Life at Drexel University in Pennsylvania. The result is planned to be a 3-story building of 14, 000 square feet with special event spaces that can hold at least 100 people, areas for worship, lounges, meeting rooms, a Drexel Hillel and a kosher kitchen. The center is expected to open its doors in 2016.
