Happy New Year!
Join us for the High Holidays at Chabad Center of Sudbury
 Outdoor Safe & Meaningful Services
 No Membership or Affiliation Required

Rosh HashanaThe Chabad Center of Sudbury invites you to join us for our warm and inviting outdoor safe and secure High Holidays Services and Programs. Taking place in a large outdoor Tent with open sides or spread out over the lawn, the services and short programs, will include all the recommended safety protocols while providing you and your family a refreshing High Holiday Experience. 

No Membership or Affiliation required, and no set charge for Seats but RSVP is a MUST for this year.

In addition to the regular services we will also be holding a short afternoon service (45 minutes) and several short (20 minute) Shofar Blowing Ceremonies on the lawn at various times of day on both days of Rosh Hashanah for those who feel more comfortable with that.

Our High Holiday services are traditional and meaningful and held in a warm and non-judgmental atmosphere where everyone feels at home and welcome. Our services are geared for secular, traditional, undecided or whatever type of Jew you are. No prior experience or background is necessary for our services, so come and join us and you will find our Services to be user friendly, human friendly, and exciting.

A unique simultaneous children's program and service will ensure that the entire family will experience a positive and meaningful High Holiday experience. The children's program includes a special children's service and interactive activities.

Your voluntary contributions are greatly appreciated to help support the increased costs of the High Holiday services and the rich array of year round programming which the Chabad Center of Sudbury provides to the community. 

As always at Chabad no one is turned away due to lack of funds.

Please note that we will have Security throughout the High Holiday Services.
