Nehar Shalom Community Synagogue is located at 43 Lochstead Avenue, Jamaica Plain. It is a large green Victorian house with a red front door. There is an arched trellis over the beginning of the short path to the stone front steps.  Coming from Center Street it is on your right, four houses before Jamaicaway.

Please do not park on Lochstead Avenue if you are able to walk a short distance.

We are trying to avoid causing congestion on the street, and would like to leave street parking and use of the driveway next to the house for those who need immediate accessibility. There is a public, non-metered parking lot on Center Street diagonally across from Lochstead Avenue (across from the Curley school). There is free parking along Center Street as well.

Please be sensitive and respectful regarding the needs of our neighbors and be careful not to cause any obstruction of driveways. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
