PARKING: Effective December 1, the Shul has a new parking arrangement with the Shopping Center. We will no longer be renting parking from the Pool. Our center parking will be to the side and behind Ben Yehuda (not in front of the businesses on that side). The center does not want us parking in front of CVS. It is very important for the success of this new parking arrangement, which costs significantly less than the arrangement with the Pool, that everyone park in the proper location. If you have any questions, please contact our president, Dr. Marc Katz.
