Entrance to all parts of Olam Tikvah's building, including the sanctuary, is fully accessible. A ramp at the northeast side of the sanctuary provides convenient access to both the central seating area and to the bimah. The social hall may be reached by both an elevator and an outdoor ramp. Large print siddurim are available in the sanctuary.
Our FM wireless listening system provides clear sound in both the main seating of the sanctuary and the surrounding pods. It is compatible with cochlear implants and hearing aids. Receivers, neck loops, and headphones can be found near the bookshelf at the sanctuary entrance. The listening system may also be used in the social hall.
Please let the office staff know if there is any way that we can make you more comfortable at Olam Tikvah.
