With the pandemic, Valley Chabad has found creative ways to stay connected with the community this high holiday season with a range of options. For Rosh Hashanah, Chabad will be constructing a 6,000 square foot tent with ample space for social distancing. It will offer three staggered services that it’s calling Short (three hours), Shorter, and Shortest (20 minutes).
“This has been a challenging year for our community and the world,” Rabbi Dov Drizin, the executive director of Valley Chabad, said. “We are excited to be offering a safe and comfortable space for our community to come together and pray for the High Holidays. It is our hope that this coming year will be one of health, happiness and prosperity for all.”
Advance registration is mandatory. There are space constrains. Location and details will be provided upon registration.
On Sunday, September 20, at 5 p.m., Valley Chabad offers the 15-minute family-oriented “Shofar in the Park” at the Marc Rinzler Memorial Field on Old Mill Road Woodcliff Lake. All are welcome; registration is not required.
Chabad will provide High Holiday kits for families who are more comfortable celebrating the holiday at home.
