High Holiday services for all – at shul or at home

The Chabad Center of Northwest NJ in Rockaway Township will hold lively High Holiday services that will be open to the community and conducted with all necessary safety precautions in place. Rosh Hashanah starts at sunset on Monday, September 6, and continues through nightfall of September 8. Yom Kippur starts before sunset on Wednesday, September 15, and continues through nightfall of Wednesday, October 16.

“Our Chabad Center has always maintained a strong welcoming policy. Services are open to everyone, regardless of affiliation, background, or financial means,” Rabbi Asher Herson, the Chabad Center’s regional director, said. “Our services are user-friendly and easy to follow so that everyone can feel comfortable. The Chabad Center’s satellite centers in Mountain Lakes, Montville, Randolph, Budd Lake, and Sparta operate the same way, offering a warm and uplifting High Holiday experience.”

“An exciting youth program will also take place, concurrent to the adult services, so that children can find personal meaning in the holiday as well” said Rabbi Mendel Stiefel, the center’s youth director. “It is essential that children participate and appreciate their treasured role as an integral part, and the future of our people.”

As it has done for the last 33 years, the Chabad Center will also provide a home or hospital visitation service, complete with shofar blowing, for people who are unable to attend a synagogue. (These services are dependent on current covid-19 guidelines.)
