In anticipation of the upcoming Jewish New Year (Sept. 24-26), the Chabad Jewish Center in Cutler Bay and Homestead is welcoming the community to its High Holiday Services.
They will be “warm, friendly, traditional, and open to all,” said Rabbi Yossi Wolff, Chabad’s executive director. 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. In addition, a special children’s program will accompany the adult services.
“Our tradition teaches that at the New Year, the Doors of Heaven are open; God accepts all prayers, from anyone,” the Rabbi explained. “The least we can do is open our doors as well, to the entire community.”
Services will be conducted on Rosh Hashanah – the Jewish New Year (Sept. 24-26), as well as Yom Kippur – the Day of Atonement (Oct. 3-4).
They will be held at various times at the Chabad Jewish Center, 20557 Old Cutler Rd., in the Old Cutler Towne Center in Cutler Bay.
