High Holidays at Chabad

Dear Friends,

Join us for services at Chabad of Putnam County where prayers are warm, the people friendly, and where everyone feels at home. We offer a welcoming service to all, regardless of background or affiliation. Our style is friendly and welcoming. We seek to make all our attendees as comfortable as possible. The services are conducted with the beginner in mind. Many of the prayers are therefore read in English and a running commentary by the rabbi accompanies the entire service, including stories, inspirational thoughts, teachings about the prayers. The service includes much festive as well as meditative singing.

We offer an excellent children's program during parts of the main services. The program is run by Morah Michal, who will explain the meaning of some of the prayers. Stories, songs, refreshments, contests and prizes will be included in this special holiday children's program.

Traditional High Holiday Services:  We are renting a larger space to accommodate a larger crowd for the High Holiday services.

Outdoor Service and Shofar Blowing:  On Sunday, the second day of Rosh Hashanah, we will be providing a 30 minute outdoor service that will include Shofar blowing, Tashlich, several selected meaningful prayers, and a brief holiday message delivered by Rabbi Korer. 

Spiritual Seats:  For those who have always reserved a seat for the Holidays in the past but will be unable to attend services this year, we are offering the option to still be part of our service. When you purchase your Spiritual Seats, the Chazzan will include your names in the prayers and by helping support Chabad, you will have the sense of belonging and the powerful Divine merit of Holiday attendance.

Holiday Gift & Prayer Book:  We will be offering a taste of the Holidays with a giveaway of homemade round challah, apples and honey, and other holiday foods, plus a beautifully printed Holiday Guide of Prayers and insights that you will be able to use for your own home Holiday Service. Stay tuned for details and volunteering opportunities.
