The Chabad Jewish Center of Novato is proud to announce its celebration of the Jewish New year. For the first time ever, Novato will be having its very own High Holiday services. Please join us, as we make history, by celebrating Rosh Hashana at our Novato .
All are welcome, regardless of affiliation or background, free of charge. The service will be a combination of 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 to Heaven are open; G-D accepts all prayers, from anyone. The least we can do is open our doors as well, to the entire community. The services will be warm, friendly and traditional.
Cantor Jaques (the Rabbi's brother) is flying in from Brooklyn to sing and inspire.
Services will be held at Novato City Hall on Rosh Hashana, at 10 a.m. Monday, Sept. 17, Shofar sounding at 11:45 a.m., special holiday prayers, followed by a buffet luncheon. There will be a special afternoon Shofar sounding at 5 p.m. for those that are unable to attend services (especially school children), at (Seventh Street between Grant and Marion).
Yom Kippur services will be at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 26.
— Rabbi Menachem and Adina Landa
