High Holidays
at Chabad Center of Passaic County
Message from the Rabbi
We at Chabad Center of Passaic County join you in hope and prayer as together we approach the new Jewish year of 5784.
Together we'll listen to the call of the Shofar, taste the sweetness of the Apple-and-Honey, and recommit to G‑d on Yom Kippur.
Join us this year to celebrate together in our synagogues and in our communities.
Wishing you a happy & sweet New Year!
Rabbi Gurkov
