Should you need to visit the synagogue building, please be mindful of our neighbors who live at the bottom of Hidden Meadow Lane. It can be quite difficult and dangerous for those driving up the hill to stop for vehicles turning left into our parking lot. Before entering the Kol Shalom parking lot, please slow down, stop, and make sure the road past our synagogue is clear of oncoming traffic.
