Accessibility & Inclusion Services
There are five accessible parking spots available in our parking lot, and wheelchair/ramp access is available for all entrances at Temple Beth Shalom. The entrance closest to our parking lot has a button operated automatic door. An elevator is available to reach the 2nd floor, where our Sanctuary balcony is located, as well as the 3rd floor.
There are braille versions of the Mishkan T’filah (our prayerbook) for our Shabbat services on Friday night and Saturday morning. If you or someone you know needs this, please contact the main Temple Beth Shalom office at firstname.lastname@example.org or at (512) 735-8900 by the Wednesday prior to the service you wish to attend so we can best support you during your visit.
The Service Committee at Temple Beth Shalom organizes Mitzvah on Wheels, a project to eliminate transportation barriers preventing some members of our congregation from fully participating in Temple life. Some of those who need rides are older members of our Temple and others are working-age members who have various disabilities or other reasons they cannot drive. To request a ride, please call the main Temple Office at (512) 735-8900. We request a few days' notice.
Official service animals are allowed at our Temple in accordance with the Shalom Austin Campus policies.
Temple Beth Shalom has women’s and men’s bathrooms on every floor of our Temple building. There are also two gender inclusive bathrooms located on the first floor. One of the gender inclusive bathrooms is inside of the Family Room, which is located to the left of the main entrance to the Sanctuary. The other is next to the kitchen, which can be found behind the Social Hall.
For other questions regarding accessibility and inclusion at our Temple events please contact the event coordinator listed for the event you'd like to attend. If no one is listed as the coordinator, please contact the Temple Beth Shalom main office at email@example.com or at (512) 735-8900 for questions or concerns.
