Of course!

What kind of Services do you offer? 

The services are conducted in both Hebrew and English and the page numbers and instructions are continuously being announced throughout the services allowing everyone to know where we are holding and what to do. Insights into select prayers are also offered by the rabbi as well as by some members of the community. 

 Our prayer books have both Hebrew and English as well as transliteration for all the parts of the services that are sung or read in unison which allows everyone to pray in the language they feel most comfortable and to participate and feel at home. 

A second service for those more comfortable with Hebrew reading will be held in a Sephardic/Israeli style.  

I have a fear of Services being long and boring? Will the Services at Chabad be the same? 

Absolutely not! Throughout the services the meaning and background of many of the prayers will be presented as well as many famous Jewish melodies will be included into the prayers, making our services interactive, entertaining and educational. 
What kind of program will you provide for my children? 

Your children will be able to participate in a special service of their own run by experienced staff will include a full children's program. Our loving and engaging counselors will make sure the kids will have a great holiday experience, playing and enjoying themselves, letting the parents focus on the inspirational services.

I can’t make it for the entire service, when would be the best time for me to come?  

  • On Rosh Hashanah it is very important to hear the sound of the Shofar which will take place on Monday, September 30th and Tuesday, October 1st at approx. 11:15 am. 
  • The Kol Nidre service on Yom Kippur eve Tuesday, October 8th at 6:30 pm, and Neila (Final Service) on Wednesday, October 9th at 5:30 pm are important prayers.
