Directions, Parking, Entry

Beginning Fall 2017, our host location is Temple Shir Tikva (TST), 141 Boston Post Road (Route 20) in Wayland.

Parking, Building Entry and Directions: Temple Shir Tikva  (also see the map below for directions)


The parking lot is on the left side of the building, with ample space.

To ensure the safety of the children in the
nursery school program and quick drop-offs for the parents, Temple Shir Tikva has decided to block off part of the parking lot for the exclusive use of the nursery school. There will still be more than enough space for LLAIC members to park on-site. Handicapped spaces will still be available for those with proper signage.

Important: please note that for safety reasons, traffic in the parking lot is ONE-WAY (see the diagram at the right). It may require going past the nursery school spaces to reach the other side of the lot, so please drive slowly and carefully. 

Occasionally all the parking spaces in the lot may be filled. There are more spaces adjacent to the TST lot. Just leave the parking lot with a right turn onto Route 20 and then make an immediate right turn onto the unpaved road leading to Camp Chickami. There are parking spaces on the right, and also a paved walkway in the middle that leads to the TST parking lot.

Building Entry

Main entrance with the Shir Tikva sign in the middle of the building. Because there are times of heavy foot-traffic through the small door and narrow hallway on the left, we will be going in by the main entrance. During most times, especially before classes, one our greeters will at that main door to let you in.

At other times you'll still be able to enter the building through the small door to the left of the main entrance.  There you will see a "Press here for admission" button.  Press this, tell the temple's administrator that you're with LLAIC, and she will release the lock to allow you entry. You can then either go up the stairs or continue through the door to the lobby and the elevator to our classrooms on the second floor.
Please remember to always wear your name tags and bring your tent cards to class.

At semester start you'll be met by greeters who will guide you to the elevator or the stairs to the second floor where our classrooms are. You'll be able to pick up your name tags and tent cards at a table on the way to class.
