Chabad Jewish Center in Bel Air to celebrate High Holiday services


The Chabad Jewish Center in Bel Air is preparing for High Holiday services with a full schedule of events:

In anticipation of the upcoming Jewish New Year (September 28-30), the  Chabad Jewish Center in Bel Air has announced its High Holiday Services schedule.  They will be “warm, friendly, traditional, and open to all,” says Chabad’s Executive Director, Rabbi Kushi Schusterman.

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.

“Our tradition teaches that at the New Year, the Doors of Heaven are open; G-d accepts all prayers, from anyone,” explains the Rabbi.  “The least we can do is open our doors as well, to the entire community.”

Services will be held on Rosh Hashanah – the Jewish New Year (September 28-30), as well as Yom Kippur – the Day of Atonement (October 7-8).  They will be held at various times (as indicated below) at the Chabad Jewish Center – 102 North Main St in Bel Air
