  • There are no bike racks on-site but you can use the bike racks across the street at Congregation Bonai Shalom

What to Wear & Bring:

Program Information:

  • The program will start promptly at 4 pm inside the tent with a few short speeches
  • We will then all walk outside together for the ceremonial groundbreaking
