Our Unique Services
Are Services at Chabad for me?
Of course! Our Services are set up in a style that everyone regardless of background or affiliation, be it reform, conservative, orthodox or unaffiliated, can feel welcome and able to participate and enjoy the High Holiday Services. The environment is warm, friendly and non-judgmental.
Do I need to become a member to join the Services?
No! There is no requirement to become a member to join our services, neither do we charge for seats. While we obviously do appreciate contributions, we don’t believe one has to pay to pray!
What kind of Services do you offer?
Services that are relevant, spiritual, informative, and thoroughly enjoyable. The services are conducted in both Hebrew and English and the page numbers are continuously being announced throughout the services allowing everyone to know where we are holding.
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. This allows everyone to pray in the language they feel most comfortable with, and to participate and feel at home.
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. Many famous Jewish melodies, stories and anecdotes will be included into the prayers, making our services interactive, entertaining and educational.
Do I need to bring a head covering, talit or prayer book?
No! We will provide all our congregants with all the provisions necessary. If you would like to bring your own head covering or Talit you may feel free to do so.
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 teachers. The children will join the adults for the blowing of the Shofar, the taking out of the Torah and other important highlights (depending on the ages of the child).
These programs will also allow the parents the ability to participate in the services without having to tend to the needs of their young children.
Will my children be provided with a snack?
Yes! The children will be provided with a variety of snacks, so no need to bring a snack of your own. If your child is on a strict diet or has allergies, it may be a good idea to bring a snack along (kindly inform the teacher at the program of any allergies your child may have).
If you have any further questions please feel free to contact us and we will be more than glad to answer them.
