Purchasing High Holy Day Tickets

High Holy Day Parking Information
Parking will be available at Cathedral of Mary Our Queen, 2500 North Charles Street, between Cold Spring Lane and Northern Parkway. PLEASE use the lower parking lot and note that the top tier and the yellow number spaces are not available during the day. Loyola shuttle busses will leave every 15 minutes for the synagogue, with travel time of 5 minutes. A volunteer will be at the Cathedral lot to direct our members to the shuttle. Shuttles will be marked “Cathedral‐Newman” and will drop off and pick up Bolton Street Guests at Newman Towers, a very short walk from the synagogue.

The Loyola Cathedral lot shuttles will be available from Cathedral of Mary Our Queen for Rosh Hashanah Day 1, Monday, October 3 (8:00 a.m. ‐ 1:00 p.m.), Erev Yom Kippur, Tuesday, October 11 (5:30 p.m. ‐ 9:30 p.m.), and Yom Kippur, Wednesday, October 12 (8:00 a.m. ‐ 1:00 p.m.).

Parking on the lot directly in front of BSS is extremely limited and will be reserved for members needing assistance. Please contact Erin Felsen at efelsen@boltonstreet.org or 410‐235‐5354 to reserve a spot.

Parking is not available in the old Bank of America lot (on the east side of BSS) OR at the medical building lot, adjacent to the synagogue on the west side. Please help us honor our pledge to the Evergreen and Keswick communities by not parking on side streets near
the synagogue. 

We will be hosting the traditional Break‐the‐Fast at BSS after Yom Kippur services on October 12th at approximately 6:45 p.m. BSS provides drinks, bagels, tuna and egg salad—the rest is provided by the congregation. Remember we keep a dairy kitchen, so no meat. In order to make sure we have enough food, please bring enough to feed 8 people according to the following list:

A‐H green salads, vegetable salads
I‐P pasta salads, kugels
R‐Z fruit salads, desserts

Please RSVP to the Break‐fast by October 3, 2016 to Erin Felsen at 410‐253‐5354 or efelsen@boltonstreet.org.
