celebrate the High Holidays with Chabad

The prayers are warm, the people are friendly and everyone feels at home.  

Whether your background in Jewish prayer and practice is extensive or limited, the services will leave you feeling enriched, connected, uplifted and energized to start your New Year in the most meaningful way.

Many of the prayers are recited by the congregation in unison, specifically in English, so that everyone can participate. Hebrew/English prayer books are used throughout the service. Rabbi Yaakov Kotlarsky provides an English running commentary of explanatory and meaningful insights. 

Children’s program

Led by our experienced and energetic group leaders, we will provide fun and educational programs for your children while you attend services. Each group will enjoy age appropriate games, stories, discussions, prayers and songs. Children’s program runs 11:00 am - 1:00 pm. The children’s room will be equipped with drinks, snacks and toys and will be open during all services.
