Parking for High Holidays 2019 • 5760


We recommend parking in residential spots close to the Jewish Community Center of the East Bay (JCCEB) if possible. If you attend evening services, parking restrictions in residential spots will not affect you. If you attend daytime services, we suggest that you display a sign explaining that you're attending services.


Print the sign for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur days here. Display it in your windshield to help Berkeley Parking Enforcement recognize why your car may be in a 2-hour residential parking spot for more than two hours. 

Do not park in yellow or green zones, parking meters, spaces that block driveways, drop off and pick up zones, or parking lots of nearby stores. You will be ticketed or towed for all such infractions.


The sign does not guarantee that you will not receive a parking ticket, but does help pre-alerted Berkeley Parking Enforcement personnel know to "pass over" your car. 


Neither the JCCEB or Jewish Gateways is responsible for any tickets incurred.


If you should incur a ticket during Rosh Hashanah or Yom Kippur in a residential (non-parking meter) parking spot and you displayed the sign indicating you were at services, please send a copy of your ticket right away to request a dismissal to:
