High Holidays
with Chabad by the Sea
Message from the Rabbi
I would like to personally invite you to join us on the High Holy days for some of the most meaningful and user-friendly traditional service. We'll listen to the call of the Shofar, taste the sweetness of the Apple-and-Honey and recommit to G‑d on Yom Kippur.
The prayers are in Hebrew and english, with ongoing comentary and insight into the liturgy, the Torah reading and the meaning of the Holy Day itself.  
See below for a detailed schedule of services and useful links to assist with your pre-holiday preparation.
Wishing you a happy & sweet New Year!
Rabbi Yochanan Friedman
