High Holidays at CLTC 5781

The High Holidays are a soulful and rejuvenating time; a season during which we get that "Jewish recharge" for the New Year.

At Chabad of Glendale, we’ve always prided ourselves on offering uplifting and inspiring services that are open to all. This year, we’ve been presented with a unique set of challenges, but challenges and obstacles only strengthen our resolve.

Knowing how important these days are – and how this year we will all need that connection perhaps more so than any other – our approach is not merely “how do we get by”, but “how do we make this the most special and memorable High Holidays of our lifetime”.

To accomplish this, while keeping everyone safe and respecting individual circumstances and preferences, we are presenting various options and avenues of participation:

Our primary concern is the health and safety of each and everyone in the community. We also want to ensure that every family in our community has the opportunity to celebrate Rosh Hashanah and hear the Shofar this year in a setting that they feel comfortable in.  (Please remember, as the first day of Rosh Hashanah this year is Shabbos, we only blow the Shofar on Sunday, the second day of Rosh Hashanah)

What Are the High Holidays?
The two-day holiday of Rosh Hashanah is the head of the Jewish year, the time when G‑d reinvests Himself in creation as we crown Him king of the universe through prayer, shofar blasts, and celebration. A week later, the High Holidays reach their crescendo with Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement). Like angels, we neither eat nor drink for 25 hours. Dressed in white, we pray in the synagogue—united as one people, children of One Father.
High Holiday Appeal
Increase your generosity of tzedakah (charity) during the High Holiday season. “Repentance, prayer, and charity take away the severity of the decree”.
