What is my parking option for getting to the High Holiday services?

Parking vouchers come at an additional cost of $12. Parking validations will be distributed at the High holiday services. Park at the Pond Parking Deck for a convenient walk to Mason Hillel services.
Note: You will require a validation to exit the Pond parking garage. It is inserted into the machine instead of credit card payment. Please hold onto your entrance ticket as you will still need that to exit.
We will have validations available during all services for those who have pre purchases them. Parking without a pre purchased validation is $3 per hr up to $14 max per day.
