In anticipation of the upcoming Jewish New Year (September 4-6), Chabad-Lubavitch of Northwest Philadelphia has announced its High Holiday Services schedule.
They will be “warm, friendly, traditional, and open to all” said Chabad’s Executive Director, Rabbi Yitzchok Gurevitz.
All are welcome to services at Chabad, free of charge, regardless of background or affiliation. Membership is not required to join and there are no prerequisites. All prayers will combine the original Hebrew and translated English.
“Whether your background in Jewish prayer and practice is extensive or limited,” said Rabbi Gurevitz, “attending services at Chabad will leave you feeling enriched, connected, uplifted and inspired.”
Services will be held on Rosh Hashanah – the Jewish New Year (September 4-6), as well as Yom Kippur – the Day of Atonement (September 13-14).
New for this year, Chabad will also be hosting a Community Rosh Hashanah Dinner on Wednesday evening, September 4, at 7:30 p.m., following services at 7 p.m. The festive dinner will incorporate the traditional foods eaten in celebration of the New Year. The cost for the dinner is $25, with family discounts available.
