Directions and Parking

Directions to Congregation Shaarei Tefillah

Congregation Shaarei Tefillah is located at 35 Morseland Avenue in Newton Centre, Massachusetts. Click here for a map.

Morseland Avenue is the first street on the north side of Commonwealth Avenue just west of Centre Street. Centre Street is located at Exit 17 off of the East Bound Mass Pike (I-90). West Bound travelers on the Mass Pike (I-90) should also exit at Exit 17, but will need to follow the traffic pattern up Washington Street and then to the left to swing around the Newton Sheraton complex over the crossover bridge. Centre Street will then be the immediate, first right.


All are welcome at our synagogue, however, as a Shomer-Shabbat organization, Congregation Shaarei Tefillah does not open its Parking Lot on Shabbat or Holidays. For non-Shabbat and Yom Tov driving, we are also perpetually mindful that our synagogue shares the streets of Newton with our residential neighbors, and we encourage all those attending our services, events, or programs to obey all Newton traffic and parking regulations.

We request all those attending events at our synagogue who must drive to adhere to the following:

  •     No parking within five feet of a driveway.
  •     No parking within twenty feet of a corner.
  •     No parking where prohibited by a posted sign.
  •     No turning around in our neighbors' driveways.
  •     No U-turns on Morseland Avenue.
  •     No parking directly opposite cars parked on narrow side streets.

In addition, we ask that you take care to leave an evening event as quietly as possible, being mindful of the hour, in order to maintain the residential quality of our neighborhood in which we congregate and all live together. Thank you!
