BOCA RATON, FL ( — Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year, starts at sunset tonight. Trying to solve a problem that plagues Boca Raton year after year, homeowner associations throughout the region are encouraging residents to call their guard gates early so holiday guests can pass through with ease.

“This is a very real problem,” said one HOA director. “Cars are often backed up into lanes of traffic because homeowners hosting holiday events just don’t call. If you have 15 cars in line, and each takes two minutes to clear by calling a homeowner to ask permission, you’re looking at half an hour.” has learned that several HOA’s started emailing homeowners Tuesday night to remind them to call ahead.

“Folks are preparing to celebrate 5775,” said an HOA resident. “If they don’t call, it could be 5776 before they’re permitted entry!”
