Parking at Eitz Chayim for Religious Services and Programming

Eitz Chayim has an agreement with the City of Cambridge that cars parked within a three- block radius of 136 Magazine St. from 6:30-10 p.m. on Friday nights will not be ticketed.  In addition, a parking consideration is in effect for the three blocks around EC during all regularly scheduled events. If you receive a ticket, notify the Eitz Chayim office at 617-497-7626 and contest the ticket by writing a letter stating that you were at an Eitz Chayim event, putting it inside the ticket envelope, and mailing it to the attention of Laura Bosco. If for any reason your protest is not honored, let the office know and we’ll confirm to the city that you were attending services or programming at EC and should not have been ticketed.
