High Holidays - Accessibility

Parking & Drop Off

The Alameda gate to the parking lot will be open for pedestrians and disabled drop-off. The Goodwin Avenue vehicle entrance will be closed.

Parking in our lot is limited. If you do not have a placard, yet have difficulty walking, please call the office and we will provide you with a parking pass.

It is always possible to enter the parking lot to drop off or pick up a member of your party who is unable to walk long distances.
Please leave street parking nearest to the synagogue open for those who need a shorter walk.

Hearing Assistance

Our Beit K’nesset Sanctuary and Beit T’fillah Chapel are equipped with the induction loop assistive-listening systems, designed to be used with hearing aids enabled to receive T-Coil transmissions in the Sanctuary and Chapel.

You are also welcome to use our public headsets, or to bring your own headset, which you can plug into our listening devices. Please note that our listening devices work best when worn around the neck with the lanyard we provide. We encourage you to contact your hearing specialist to determine if your hearing aid is enabled to receive T-Coil transmissions, which is a common feature for most hearing aids.

Security & Safety

Our on-site security guards, together with our volunteer ushers (wearing USHER badges), in coordination with the Redwood City Police, will act to maximize safety. We thank you for your cooperation with all of our team.

During busy times, there will be NO LEFT TURN from Alameda into the parking lot. The pedestrian entrance from the Goodwin Avenue gate will be open. For safety and security, please park only in marked stalls in our lot. Please do not cars park in the red zone of Alameda.

Machzor Pick Up

Machzorim will be available for pick up in the office beginning on September 1, 2023. If pick up is a challenge for you, we will arrange for the Machzorim to be delivered to you. Please make sure to return your books before October 23, 2023 in order to avoid a $75 charge per machzor.


We offer services outdoors, our indoor services will have a mask-only section, and most of our services are available virtually. Please see our schedule for more information about the locations of services.

Virtual Access

Make your Zoom or webcam experience as meaningful as possible. Set aside distractions and create a holy space. We recommend you have your own book to follow along. If you are on Zoom, you can submit names to be read for Healing prayers and unmute for Mourner’s kaddish.
