As we excitedly prepare for Yom Kippur, we’d like to make you aware of the following important details that will help ensure a smooth experience for us all.


Fort Lauderdale Marriott Coral Springs Hotel & Convention Center

  • Self Parking is included 


  • Check in is at 4 PM on September 24th. While every effort will be made to have your room key available before 4PM, it is not guaranteed. Early arrivals may come in to drop off their bags with the hotel and sit in the lobby or other areas no earlier than 2PM.
  • At check-in you will receive a magnet to be placed over your suite’s electronic lock to disengage it during the holiday. Please be advised that your personal belongings and any valuables are your sole responsibility. Both the hotel and the Synagogue will not be held liable for any missing items. A waiver will need to be signed to hold the hotel harmless during check-in when you pick up your magnet.
