High Holidays
at Chabad of Park Slope
Message from the Rabbis
We at Chabad of Park Slope join you in hope and prayer as together we approach the new Jewish year of 5776.
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.
Join us this year to celebrate together in our synagogues, in our communities — and with your pre-holiday preparation online at chabadparkslope.com.
Wishing you a happy & sweet New Year!,
Rabbi Shimon Hecht

shofar in the park & Tashlich
Can't make it to a full service on Rosh Hashanah? Join us in Prospect Park in the late afternoon of Rosh Hashana for a condensed half-hour "service" where we will blow the Shofar and capitalize onthe simple-yet-profound message of the Shofar and usher in the New Year with a transformative meditation, giving you the tools to make your year sweet. 
Following Shofar in the Park, 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.
Shofar in the Park will be on the lawn next to the Prospect Park Bandshell (9th St. Entrance) at 5:30pm CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFORMATION

Tashlich will follow at 6:00pm at the Dog Beach
