Jewish Recovery Community T’Shuvah Center Heads to Bed-Stuy
Jewish congregation and recovery center T’Shuvah Center is opening its first New York City location in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, Commercial Observer has learned.
T’Shuvah Center, which grew out of the values of Beit T’Shuvah Center in Los Angeles, signed a seven-year lease for a 17,400-square-foot space at 722 Myrtle Avenue, on the corner of Walworth Street, according to broker Josh Augenbaum, who handled the deal for T’Shuvah. The residential recovery center, which combines the principles of the Jewish faith with the 12 Steps, addiction recovery care and the creative arts, will open towards the end of the year. It will take over a ground-floor space previously occupied by Bedford Stuyvesant Alcoholism Treatment Center.
Asking rent in the transaction was $35 a square foot.
Augenbaum, of Augenbaum Realty Corp., represented the tenant. Nick Zweig of Locations Commercial Real Estate represented the landlord, Marc Scot Realty Inc. Neither broker immediately returned a request for comment.
Residents at T’Shuvah Center stay for six to nine months, rather than the traditional 30 days. The treatment program incorporates daily Torah study, group therapy, music, art and yoga classes, and workshops in managing stress, anger and trauma, according to its website.
The T’Shuvah Center is excited to be able to offer needed resources to this community,” said a spokeswoman for the organization.
