Congregation Beth Shalom's parking lot is not very big, however, we have enough parking spots to cover most morning minyan services, including Sundays, when Hebrew School is also in session. Street parking is also available on both the 18th Street and Baynard Boulevard sides of the building. During High Holy Days and special events, Wilmington Police are available to offer suggestions where to park should the need arise.
