High Holy Days Information

L’Shanah Tovah!

Nametags Information   

At this holiest of seasons, we take special pleasure in welcoming visitors to our congregation as we join together in worship. To insure peace of mind and enable each of us to greet others warmly, we issue  nametags to all who wish to attend.

Members in Good Standing and their dependent children age 13 and over will receive nametags in the mail. This year we are including any of your children who are beyond the age of Bar or Bat Mitzvah, but not yet in college. While nametags are not necessary for younger children accompanying their parents, stick-on nametags are available for them at your request.

College students and military personnel may obtain free nametags by pre-registering and showing proper photo identification when signing in.

Out-of-town guests or visitors who are members in good standing in other URJ congregations may also receive nametags as a courtesy. Information regarding their current affiliation may be faxed to the Temple office (865) 525-6030 from their home congregation.

Non-members may also receive nametags by registering and showing proper photo identification. Their donation of $75 per person will be credited to their membership if they join by the end of December of this year.


Parking Information
for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur

Temple Beth El is pleased to provide complimentary Valet Parking for most of this year’s Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services.

Valet Parking is limited to those with a Handicap Permit, respiratory or mobility issues.

Handicap Parking will not be available in front of the Temple. Those spaces are needed for valet entry and exit and to allow for two lanes of traffic.

If you need Valet Parking, please contact Tina Fleeman at the Temple Office and leave your name.

The entire first level of parking at the rear of the building is reserved for those who have purchased those parking spaces and valet parking.

All other parking will be on parking levels 2, 3, and 4 and at the Teen Center next door.
