Happy New Year!

Join us for the High Holidays at

Chabad of the Emerald Coast

Rabbi's Message

We at Chabad join you in hope and prayer as together we approach the new Jewish year of 5781.

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.

When the novel coronavirus swept across the globe in the weeks before Passover, there was a frenzied panic as we prepared to celebrate the holiday alone, physically distant from our extended family and friends.

Six months later, a lot has changed. Many of us have already begun to venture out, and some synagogues have reopened (in a limited fashion). Yet, for millions, the situation is essentially the same, as they patiently bide their time before they will once again mingle with others.

We will have 2 options this year for Rosh Hashanah services to enable social distancing. If you are homebound and unable to attend either, please let us know so we can send you a Rosh Hashanah stay at home kit.

Wishing you a happy & sweet New Year!
