High Holidays at Chabad

Dear Friends,

This year will be unlike any other. Our mission is to be here for you and provide you with the most meaningful, authentic and uplifting High Holiday experience possible. To achieve this, we will be providing a number of High Holiday options:

Indoor High Holiday Services:  We are renting a larger space to accommodate a socially-distanced, but spiritually uplifting, 90 minute holiday service, which is significantly shorter than usual. There will be limited seats available so you must reserve a seat for each service you plan to attend. Masks will be required.

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

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.

Pre-Holiday Classes & Inspiration:  We will be offering classes and DIY training to inspire services at home.
