BOOK OF REMEMBRANCE: This is a reminder that Beth El Synagogue Center’s Book of Remembrance will be issued for Yom Kippur and the other holidays when Yizkor is recited. To list your loved ones in our memorial book, visit bethelnr.org/bor. The suggested donation is $36 per name.

TASHLICH 

We will come together on Thursday, Sept. 21  at 4:45p.m. at Paine Lake with our clergy to symbolically cast away our sins and renew our souls in relation to sin and repentance. The bread crumbs we cast away symbolize the things we arwe ready to release, the things thet no longer serve us, the things that feel old and dried out. Dress casually and bring bread so that you can symbolically cast your sins into the lake.

SAFETY, SECURITY & EVACUATION PROCEDURE

Your safety and security are our priority. We take extra precautions for the High Holidays and thank you for your cooperation and understanding. Please be prepared to show your tickets at the main entrance to our building and allow extra time, since additional security precautions may result in delays upon entering the building.

In case of emergency, you will be instructed to evacuate the building via the nearest exit (see Evacuation Procedures here). Designated assembly points are The Ursuline School and the Wykagyl Shopping Center (CVS). 

PARKING

On the High Holidays, we gather in numbers far greater than at any other time of year. In an effort to make the synagogue accessible to all of our members and guests, the following provisions have been made:

Handicap Parking: All parking spaces in the front of Beth El will be designated and reserved for those displaying a handicap sticker (first-come, first-served). Please be considerate of those that need parking closest to the building and only park in these spaces if it applies to you. While you may want to park in the front lot because of illness or other difficulty, please understand that due to the large numbers of people attending, we must limit parking in the front lot to only those with a handicap sticker. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Additional Parking: Our rear parking lots are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Auxiliary parking is available at The Fountainhead on Rosh Hashanah, Kol Nidre, and Yom Kippur. The Wykagyl Shopping Center (CVS) is a privately owned lot, and you may be subject to towing at the discretion of others. Drop off access at the front of our building will be available. Questions? Call the office at 914.235.2700, ext. 223.
