Shanah Tovah!

The High Holidays are a soulful and rejuvenating time; a season during which we get that "Jewish recharge" for the New Year.

At Chabad of Las Cruces, we’ve always prided ourselves on offering uplifting and inspiring services that are open to all. This year, we’ve been presented with a unique set of circumstances, but challenges and obstacles only strengthen our resolve.

Knowing how important these days are – and how t his year we will all need that connection perhaps more so than any other – our approach is not merely “how do we get by”, but “how do we make this the most special and memorable High Holidays of our lifetime”.

To accomplish this, while keeping everyone safe and respecting individual circumstances and preferences, we are presenting various options and avenues of participation:

Rosh Hashana Service
HH Dinner to go
Yom Kippur Service
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.
