Parking and Accessible Parking
New this year—the lower level parking lot will be available for general parking on a first come basis.
All on-site parking, except the lower level parking lot, will be reserved for accessible parking on a first come basis and will be managed by complimentary valet service. You must display your blue government issued permit to be eligible for accessible parking.

Using the same procedures as last year, to valet park or to drop off passengers, please enter on Miles Avenue and follow signs. There are two designated drop-off points: in front of the west entrance (Bridal Room) and by the Stanley and Marilyn Katz Courtyard entrance. After dropping off, please proceed straight through to the church exit next door ( click diagram above ).
Vehicles parked illegally will be subject to ticketing or towing. Do not leave your car unattended and do not park in a fire lane at any time.
Please respect our neighbors when parking on the surrounding streets by not blocking driveways or walkways and by not parking on the edges of lawns. Also, please do not park in the church parking lot next door or in neighboring synagogues’ parking lots.
Safety and Security
Maintaining everyone’s safety in our building and on our grounds is of the highest priority. Expect to see greater security measures being taken and please follow instructions and cooperate with ushers and security personnel. 
In compliance with fire codes, all aisles must be kept clear, and so strollers are not permitted inside the Milstein Sanctuary or Tent service located in the gym. Please see the designated stroller parking areas throughout the building. 
Children who are registered for childcare or youth/teen programs must remain with their caregivers or teachers. Children cannot be left unattended in the building or on the grounds, and parents must supervise their children at all times. 

For safety and security, the Nursery School playground will be closed and locked.
Fund for the TIC Hungry and Homeless Yom Kippur Appeal 

For a lot of our neighbors here in Westchester a steady income, a place of their own and nourishing reliable meals are a dream right now. Children are living in shelters.
