High Holidays
at Chabad of Naperville
Message from the Rabbi
 

This Year, join a meaningful and inspiring High Holiday service, in a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

You may see yourself as unaffiliated, Reform, Conservative, or Orthodox. At Chabad we see you as Jewish. Chabad is home for every kind of Jew.

Our services are refreshingly casual and easy to follow. 

The English-Hebrew annotated prayer book, along with song and commentary, make everyone an active participant. The kids will enjoy special children's interactive programs, just for them.

So you're invited! All you have to do is register with our online form here.

Looking forward in greeting you,
Rabbi Mendy & Alta Goldstein

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.
Tashlich will take place following Kiddush on September 10
