High Holidays
at Chabad of Silver Spring
Message from the Rabbi
We at Chabad of Silver Spring join you in hope and prayer as together we approach the new Jewish year of 5781.
Together we'll listen to the call of the Shofar, taste the sweetness of the Apple-and-Honey, recommit to G‑d on Yom Kippur.
We are hosting Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services indoors and outdoors at 7:00 am and 9:00 am. We will also have a special higher-risk minyan at 10:00 am to accommodate those who would like to attend services with enhanced distancing and other safety measures in place. 
We will have shofar blown at 1:00 pm, 2:00 pm, 3:00 pm, 4:00 pm, and 5:00 pm on the streetcorner at Lovejoy and Lamberton. Please feel free to join us to hear shofar at one of these times. If you cannot come for one of the shofar blowings at Lamberton and Lovejoy and you need shofar blown at your home, we can arrange for someone to do so from a safe distance outdoors. 
We are accepting names for listing in our Yizkor booklets. A donation of $50 allows for a permanent name listing in our Yizkor book. Click here to add a name. 
For 5781, High Holidays seat reservations are available only to shul members only. If you would like to join as a member or associate member please click here
Wishing you a happy and sweet New Year!

Seat Reservations
The prayers are warm. The melodies are timeless. The people are friendly. The kids have a program. And everyone feels at home. Welcome to high holiday services at Chabad of Silver Spring. Where we already saved you a seat.
We have 5 minyan options (indoors and outdoors at 7:00 am and 9:00 am and a shorter minyan for those in a higher risk category at 10:00 am) on both days of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. There is a special pod-based children's program for kids ages 4 and older on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Families will be assigned to a 1 hour time slot with just a few other families after registration. Advance RSVP for services and kids program is necessary.

Click here to register for the 9:00 am service indoors. 

 
 
Kids Program
Led by our experienced and energetic group leaders, we will provide fun and educational programs for your children ages 4 and older. Each group will enjoy age appropriate games, stories, discussions, prayers and songs. Specific room assignments for children's programs will be announced closer to Rosh Hashanah.
Times and pod assignments will be emailed.
 
Tashlich
In the late afternoon of Rosh Hashana, 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.
