High Holiday Parking
Parking spaces are available in three places on our campus - in our main parking lot, in the alleyway behind the social hall, and in the row facing Marseilles Place. Please keep the circular driveway by the sanctuary open for those who are dropping off/picking up. If all of our parking spots are filled, you may park on the surrounding streets, but please be considerate of our neighbors and avoid parking on their grass, blocking driveways, etc.  

We have seven designated handicapped handicapped parking places in our main parking lot (three adjacent to the door, four facing West Esplanade). During the High Holy Days, we also reserve additional spots for those requiring special assistance. These spaces will be in the center row of the parking lot facing the door and will be clearly marked with signs. They are free of charge and available on a first come, first serve basis. Please let the office know if you are planning to make use of the handicapped and/or special assistance spaces so we can be sure to designate enough of them.
Guests in our Sukkah
Last year when we dedicated our Sukkah we asked every person in Shir Chadash to be one of our  ushpizin  – Sukkah guests - and to fill the Sukkah with their wisdom. All those photographs survived last year’s storms and we will use them again! But if you did not send something last year - please, send us a photograph of you – alone or with your relatives - plus a short piece (20 words or less) of your wisdom. It can be something a member of your family used to say or a principle by which you live. We will laminate the photos, put your wisdom on the back of them and hang them in the Sukkah as decorations.
Please get your photographs and wisdom to Danielle NO LATER THAN SEPTEMBER 21ST so that we all have time to prepare.
