Informative – Reserved Handicap Parking on Route 50
As you know, Congregation Etz Hayim does offer reserved handicap parking on S. Fenwick St. The availability we offer today is not enough to attend the needs of all congregants.
With that thought in mind, we are working together to make sure our 3 first spots on Route 50 are also reserved for handicap parking for our congregants during Shabbat Services on Friday nights, Shabbat Services on Saturday mornings and Religious School on Sunday mornings.
Please, help us share this initiative!
