What kind of Services do you offer?

Our Services are set up in a style that everyone is able to participate in High Holiday Services in an environment that is warm, friendly and non-judgmental.

Do I need to become a member to join the Services?

There is no requirement to become a member to join our services. However, we do appreciate the contributions made by the generous people who participate in our services and programmes and join our partner project.

Will I be able to follow the entire Service if I am slow at reading Hebrew or unable to read Hebrew at all?

The services are conducted in both Hebrew and English and the page numbers are continuously being announced throughout the services allowing everyone to know where we are holding.

Our prayer books have both Hebrew and English as well as transliteration for all the parts of the services that are sung or read in unison which allows everyone to pray in the language they feel most comfortable and to participate and feel at home.

Do I need to bring a head covering, talit or prayer book?

We will provide all our congregants with all the provisions necessary. If you would like to bring your own kipa or Talis you may feel free to do so.

What kind of programme will you provide for my children?

Our children are provided with a special programme run by experienced teachers that will allow them to participate and enjoy a service of their own. The children will at times join the adults for the Shofar blowing, the taking out of the Torah and other important highlights. These programmes will also allow the parents the ability to participate in the services without having to tend to the needs of their young children. (Please confirm before Yom Tov that this has been secured).

I have a fear of Services being long and boring? Will the Services at Chabad be the same?

Absolutely not! Throughout the services the meaning and background of many of the prayers will be presented as well as many famous Jewish melodies will be included into the prayers, making our services interactive, entertaining and educational.

If you have any further questions please feel free to contact us and we will be more than glad to answer them.
