The community is welcome to lively services at the Chabad Center of Northwest NJ in Rockaway Township. Rosh Hashanah starts at sunset on Friday, September 15, and continues through nightfall of September 17. Yom Kippur starts before sunset on Sunday, September 24, and continues through nightfall on Monday, September 25.
“Our Chabad Center has always maintained a strong welcoming policy,” Rabbi Asher Herson, the Chabad Center’s regional director, said. “Services are open to everyone, regardless of affiliation, background or financial means. Our services are user friendly and easy to follow so that everyone can feel comfortable. This is how our satellite centers in Mountain Lakes, Montville, Randolph, Budd Lake, Berkshire Valley, and Sparta operate as well.”
“There’s also a youth program, concurrent to the adult services, so that children can find personal meaning in the holiday as well,” Rabbi Mendel Stiefel, the center’s youth director, added. “Children must feel their treasured role as an integral part, and the future, of our people.”
As it has done for the last 35 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.
