Special Info and Options

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, which you may view below.

  • Traditional High Holiday Services: Our cantor will lead us in a spiritually uplifting holiday service. Y ou and your family can look forward to ushering in the New Year enveloped by the uplifting spirit of joy, learning, meaning, spirituality, singing, and community, that is the hallmark of our services.
  • Outdoor Shofar Blowing: During Rosh Hashana we will be providing a 20 minute outdoor family program that will include a Shofar Blowing, several selected holiday songs, and short words of inspiration.

By purchasing your Spiritual Seats, the Chazzan will include your names in the prayers, and you will be helping support Chabad, thereby giving you the sense of belonging and the powerful Divine merit of Holiday attendance.
  • Pre-Holiday Classes & Inspiration: We will be offering classes and DIY training to inspire your own prayers at home.

What Are the High Holidays?

The two-day holiday of Rosh Hashanah is the head of the Jewish year, the time when G‑d reinvests Himself in creation as we crown Him king of the universe through prayer, shofar blasts, and celebration. A week later, the High Holidays reach their crescendo with Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement). Like angels, we neither eat nor drink for 25 hours. Dressed in white, we pray in the synagogue—united as one people, children of One Father.
