According to Rabbi Reuven Mintz of the Jewish Center, “Many families don’t attend services because the Synagogue environment is foreign to them. There is a need to reach out and ensure that they too are welcomed to services on these holiest days of the Jewish year.” 

To this end, the inspirational Jewish New Year services sponsored by the Chabad Center for Jewish Life are designed to be user-friendly, making it educational, enjoyable and meaningful for both the novice and the expert. There are options for traditional and short services and for indoor and outdoor services overlooking the Back Bay. There will also be an exciting interactive children’s program.

Holy High Holiday (Jewish New Year and Yom Kippur) services include:

–Rosh Hashanah: Sunday-Tuesday, Sept. 25-27

–Yom Kippur: Tuesday and Wednesday, Oct. 4-5
