Chabad recognizes all Jews, regardless of affiliation, background or levels of observances.
We invite you to explore our site and join in our many programs, celebrations, and events. We look forward to personally welcoming you at the Chabad Center for Jewish Life where you will find warmth, wisdom a place to call home!
The festival of Rosh Hashanah—the name means “Head of the Year”—is observed for two days beginning on 1 Tishrei, the first day of the Jewish year.
Yom Kippur is the holiest day of the year—the day on which we are closest to G‑d and to the quintessence of our own souls. It is the Day of Atonement.
For forty years, as our ancestors traversed the Sinai Desert, following the Exodus from Egypt, miraculous “clouds of glory” surrounded and hovered over them.
The holiday of Sukkot is followed by an independent holiday called Shemini Atzeret and Simchat Torah.
