The main entrance off North Braeswood, adjacent to the main Temple offices, holds 43 parking slots, 4 of which are designated handicapped, two of those are van accessible.

The Leadership of our congregation is committed to the security of our campus and ensuring the protection of all our members, students and staff. In a process that began in early 2005, our Security Committee worked closely with the Jewish Federation of Greater Houston and local law enforcement officials to determine our security needs. A professional security analyst also provided an independent evaluation of our immediate and long term needs. The result of those reports became the blueprint for improving our overall security.

Funded by grants and your security fees, we have improved our perimeter fencing, updated and added to our campus surveillance abilities, added additional hours of onsite uniformed police, and provided much needed staff training. These and other added improvements increase the security of our campus and those who work, learn, and pray in our beautiful facilities.
