All are Welcome-No Membership Fees or Tickets Needed
Despite Hurricane Irma’s destruction in the Gables, Chabad of Downtown Coral Gables has announced that its High Holiday Services will still be taking place at the beautiful Coral Gables Country Club on the upcoming Jewish New Year (Sep. 20-22, Sep. 29-30). “We are filled with gratitude to the Almighty that we in South Florida were spared from a real bomb. Yet as we recover let us gather in strength and unity at the elegant and spacious Coral Gables Country Club. It is a perfect setting for an introspective and uplifting service. Once again, we will kick off the holiday with our exquisite, four course New Year’s Dinner on Wednesday night”, says Chabad’s Co-Director, Chany Stolik.
The services will be warm, welcoming and easy to follow, whether ones’ background in Jewish prayer and practice is at a beginners or advanced level. Chabad’s Executive Director, Rabbi Avrohom Stolik shares that the services will be “friendly, inviting and open to all”. The English-Hebrew prayer book, helpful insights and commentary, will make everyone an active participant. The kids will enjoy an interactive children’s program.
“When I attended services with Chabad of Downtown Coral Gables last year, I felt so comfortable and at home even though my family was in South America” says Josh Pariente, resident of Coral Gables.
