Chabad of Greenwich holds High Holiday Services

Chabad of Greenwich will again hold free High Holiday services for all, regardless of level of observance or affiliation. No membership, tickets, or reservations needed.

“At Chabad, we celebrate the high holidays in a warm and family-friendly atmosphere for everyone, with programming for children of all ages,” said Chabad Rabbi Yossi Deren. “Our services are accessible to both beginner and advanced, and we keep tots engaged with lively programming to allow parents to attend services separately if they so choose. What’s most important is that everyone enjoys this important time of the year, which is both solemn and joyous.”

Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur services for 2016 will be held at Carmel Academy, 270 Lake Avenue in Greenwich. Services for Rosh Hashana — the Jewish New Year — begin Sunday, Oct. 2 at 6:30, and continue Monday and Tuesday, Oct. 3-4. Kol Nidrei, the opening prayer of Yom Kippur — the Jewish Day of Atonement — begins at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 11, and services continue the next day until 7 p.m. Yom Kippur closes with a 5:30 family service on Oct. 12, followed by shofar blowing and a break-fast for all.
