Tremont Street is one block east of Prospect Street, just off Broadway, between Central and Inman Squares. 

ACCESSIBILITY*
We regret that 8 Tremont Street is generally not an accessible building, although our sanctuary and office are accessible. People who have difficulty with stairs can enter our main sanctuary by using the wheelchair ramp to the left of the front entrance. If the door is not open during services, please knock. Our office is also accessible. Other spaces in our building, including our vestry, where some services are held and where kiddush and meals are served, require stairs to access, and we regret that we do not have a wheelchair-accessible restroom. Call or email the office for more information or if you wish access to the sanctuary at times other than during Shabbat or Holiday services. If you have special transportation needs, contact MBTA’s The Ride program at 1-(800) 533-6282, (617) 722-5123 or (617) 722-5415 TTY.

* We have recently begun planning a broad Centennial Campaign, designed to make our building both wheelchair-accessible and also more welcoming in a variety of other ways. We hope to have this project completed by the fall of 2020, a long wait from today -- but it will be a big accomplishment for a small congregation in a 1924 building!

ERUV

The shul and the hotels listed below are inside the North Charles Community Eruv.

PARKING

Parking on Tremont Street is restricted to Cambridge residents with a sticker. Restrictions are not in effect on Sunday. There is non-resident parking on Broadway, on Norfolk Street along the park, on Hampshire Street, and in public parking lots off Massachusetts Avenue and at Kendall Square. Also beware of the monthly street cleaning days, which are posted. They tow 100% of the time. Note: Please be respectful of our neighbors and never park in any driveway, even if you will “only just be a minute.” Good relations with our neighbors are very important to us, and few things are as irritating as finding your driveway blocked.
