High Holidays
at Chabad of RARA
Message from the Rabbi
We at Chabad of RARA join you in hope and prayer as together we approach the new Jewish year of 5777.
Together we'll listen to the call of the Shofar, taste the sweetness of the Apple-and-Honey, recommit to G‑d on Yom Kippur.
Join us this year to celebrate together in our synagogues, in our communities — and with your pre-holiday preparation online at chabadofrara.org.
Wishing you a happy & sweet New Year!,

The prayers are warm. The melodies are timeless. The people are friendly. The kids have a program. And everyone feels at home. Welcome to high holiday services at [mosad_name]. Where we already saved you a seat.
Services conducted in English and Hebrew, with simultaneous insights and explanations into the prayers, practices & rituals. Kippot and Machzor provided. No advance rsvp necessary.

In the late afternoon of Rosh Hashana, the entire community joins together in a proud processional for the observance of \"Tashlich\". Representing the themes of renewal and rejuvenation, this tradition also has a way of demonstrating a spirit of communal solidarity as young and old march and sing together while en route to perform a fascinating mitzvah.
Tashlich will take place after services on the first day of Rosh Hashana
