The recently finished Lemberg Children’s Center hosted its formal dedication and unveiling on Tuesday morning, Oct. 7. Brandeis President Frederick M. Lawrence, Waltham Mayor Jeannette McCarthy, Provost Steven Goldstein '78, and Lemberg Executive Director Howard Baker as well as parents, teachers, and staff were on hand for the event. Mayor McCarthy honored the center and President Lawrence with aproclamation, praising their service to the children and families of both the Brandeis community and Waltham. At the end of the unveiling, the center’s children sung “The Garden Song” and “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” with the help of Lemberg teachers and Associate Director of Music Education Scott Kepnes, who joined along with his guitar.

The former Lemberg Children’s Center, which was located inside the main campus, has since been remodeled to house the Crown Center for Middle East Studies. The new Lemberg Center, which is fully handicap accessible, is located on the other side of South Street. The university plans to further develop the center through landscaping, gardening, and constructing a playground for the children.
