You are invited to join us for inspiring and meaningful High Holiday services, in a place where everyone feels at home and welcome. From our easy to follow Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services, to our hotel accomodation and  gourmet holiday dining, at Sandton Central Shul you can experience the High Holidays like never before.
This year will be unlike any other.
Our mission is to be here for you, and provide you with the most meaningful, authentic and uplifting High Holiday experience possible.

  • Traditional High Holiday Services: Joi us for spiritually uplifting entire holiday service. There will be limited, socially-distanced seats available. Masks will be required.
  • Outdoor Shofar Blowing: At multiples locations in Sandton's CBD we will offer Shofar Blowing with several selected prayers, and short words of inspiration.
  • Spiritual Seats: For those who have always reserved a seat for the Holidays but will be unable to attend in person; we are offering you the option to still be part of our service. By purchasing your Spiritual Seats, we will include any specific names that you request in the prayers, and you will be helping support Chabad, thereby giving you the sense of belonging and the powerful Divine merit of Holiday attendance.
  • Holiday Gift & Prayer Book:  We will be offering a taste of the Holidays with a give-away of home made honey cake, apples and honey, plus a beautifully printed Holiday Guide of Prayers and Insights that you will be able to use for your own home-bound Holiday Service.
  • Pre-Holiday Classes & Inspiration: We will be offering classes and DIY training to inspire your own prayers at home as well as recording and sending out the High Holiday Sermons before the holiday.

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.
