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 5781. Although we are still amidst the Covid-19 Pandemic, we have a full schedule of safe and meaningful services for the High Holidays. 
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 Michel and Chani Gurkov
Rabbi Mayer and Chanie Gurkov

On the afternoon of the 2nd day of Rosh Hashanah, the entire community joins together in a proud processional for the observance of "Tashlich". Representing the themes of renewal and rejuvenation, this tradition also has a way of demonstrating a spirit of communal solidarity as young and old march and sing together while en route to perform a fascinating Mitzvah.
Increase your generosity of Tzedakah (charity) during the High Holiday season. "Repentance, Prayer and Charity take away the severity of the decree".
