High Holiday Services | 5784

at B’nai Abraham Chabad of Philadelphia | Society Hill

What are “User-Friendly” Yom Kippur and Rosh Hashanah services?

Our spiritual leaders as well as our host lay leaders aim to make your High Holidays a truly meaningful experience. They will walk you through the prayers and provide explanations and anecdotes throughout the services.

Services are free of charge (no high holiday tickets required) and a delicious dinner will be offered on Rosh Hashanah eve as well as lunch buffets following morning services on both days of Rosh Hashanah.

A break-the-fast buffet will follow Yom Kippur services. There is a charge for the meals (see below) and reservations are required.

Donations are always welcome and appreciated

Services are 100% free, but for security purposes please complete our 1-minute registration form below.
We look forward to personally welcoming you to B’nai Abraham Chabad!
