Adath Israel introduced a new online parking registration program for the 2019 Holy Days to access our lot, primarily for those with accessible permits.
- As we learned on the first morning of Rosh Hashanah, the number of registrants along with other long-time members with accessible permits far exceeded the number of spots available. We filled to capacity quickly and many of you experienced long line-ups. We apologize and recognize it is unfair to ask you to repeat those long line-ups during Kol Nidre and Yom Kippur services.
- Therefore, we have made the decision to return to our previous system whereby the lot will be available to those with accessible permits on a first-come, first serve basis and when we are filled, we ask you to park in alternative areas around our Shul – outlined below*.
- We acknowledge this is not ideal. Although we have a large lot, the reality is that we have a greater demand than our capacity allows. By reaching out to you in advance, we hope you will be able to establish alternative parking plans should our lot be filled when you arrive so there are no surprises.
- We recommend an early arrival. On Kol Nidre, our gates will open at 4:30 pm and for Yom Kippur services, our gates will open at 7:45 am. Please be prepared to show your accessible permit or pass to our security guard so we can keep traffic flow moving efficiently to reduce your wait time. *ALTERNATIVE PARKING
- You may drop off in front of the doors at Southbourne, Westgate or inside the lot with permission from our security guard.
- Please observe and respect all street signage as the synagogue is not responsible for parking tickets. Toronto Police do provide flexibility with parking in the neighborhood provided you do so legally.
Expanded Parking Lot:
- The Tzu Chi Buddhist Church, located at 171 Delhi Avenue across from Summit Heights Field, has once again offered free parking on a first-come, first-serve basis.
No Frills Parking:
- Thanks to the generosity of our neighbour at No Frills, (very) limited parking is available. Please respect the instructions of their security guard and park only in the designated areas. Avoid all spots marked “No Frills Parking Only”.
Thank you for your understanding. We look forward to seeing you on Kol Nidre Yom Kippur.
