To help make everyone’s High Holiday experience more enjoyable:

· Seating is “open seating” with some of the aisle seats reserved for those with physical conditions requiring them to sit on the aisle.  We ask all our participants to be respectful of those seats during the High Holiday services.

· Parking:
o   We have 100 spaces on our property:  If walking is easy for you, PLEASE consider leaving these spaces for those needing handicapped or closer spaces.
o   Street parking:  We can park on the street (access road).  The police department recommends we park ONLY on the far (east) side of the access road.  They also recommend we drive to the end of the access road, turn around in the circle, and then park.  This allows for easy egress when you leave and sufficient space for emergency vehicles to get down the road.  Many cars can park on the street.
o   Parking at Olney Manor: We have permission to park at Olney Manor (other side of Georgia Avenue) but NOT IN FRONT OF THE POOL BUILDING.  Please use the cross walks to more safely cross Georgia Avenue.
