Join CBS Under the Big Tent for Yom Kippur

Bonai Shalom invites you to join them under their tent for Yom Kippur at their newly renovated shul at 1527 Cherryvale Road! Tickets are still available for purchase by calling the office at 303-442-6605. It is very important to please call ahead to arrange tickets and RSVP.

Bonai ShalomPARKING 

Main parking is across the street from Bonai Shalom in the Jewish Commons, on the East side of Cherryvale Rd.  It will be easiest to enter the parking lot by approaching from the south, so driving on Cherryvale from the south (Baseline) towards Arapahoe, the turn into the parking will be on the right. Please wear comfortable shoes since the parking location is in a field. Please utilize the drop-off zone if it is wet or raining outside. We encourage you to drop passengers and those needing greater accessibility at the drive thru drop off (in front of the building) before parking. There is limited accessible parking in Rabbi Marc’s back yard for those who need it, note that it is uneven ground.  Please only park in this area if you have accessibility needs.

VOLUNTEER: If you are able/available to do so, please help breakdown chairs and pack up books after break-fast on Yom Kippur. We will also need a few hands Sunday.
