A Mini  Yizkor Service 2:30-3:00 PM

Spiritual Seats:  For those who have always reserved a seat for the Holidays but will be unable to attend in person; we are offering you the  option to  still be part of our service. 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.
High Holiday Appeal
Increase your generosity of tzedakah (charity) during the High Holiday season. “Repentance, prayer, and charity take away the severity of the decree”.
