Chabad High Holiday Services in Lakewood Ranch are awaited every year for its sense of community and its spiritual energy boost that it gives people all year long.  The community loves being together, especially in the High Holiday season. That’s the time of year when we all charge up our batteries.

This year, we need to be creative to provide High Holiday services albeit in a safe way for all.  Our goals are to provide you with much needed inspiration and a sense of connection to the community and to G‑d as we begin the New Year.

Please note that we are in touch with our medical doctors and monitoring the COVID situation closely as it can change rapidly. We will keep you posted with any additional safety measures needed.  At this point, masks are strongly recommended for vaccinated people and required for non vaccinated persons.  We will be having a separate seating area for people who will be masked and social distancing only. 

Please help us as we prepare for you and reserve for the service you would like to attend. Reservations are required this year as services will be capped per size.

As always Chabad will provide traditional and inspirational services in a warm and friendly atmosphere.  There is no affiliation necessary and no membership fees or tickets.  Hebrew/English Prayer-Books will be provided, Kiddush Buffets (outdoor dining available) and a Special CKIDS Program, as well as an outdoor Shofar blowing and Tashlich service will be offered as well.

These are confusing and challenging times and any decision you make for the High Holidays will be the right one for you.  Everyone has their own sets of circumstances that will dictate their comfort level with attending in person services this year.  We just want you to have the tools to celebrate the High Holidays in any way you feel is safe.

We look forward to a safe, enjoyable, and inspiring high holiday season together.  if you have any questions or concerns or would like clarification, please reach out to Rabbi Mendy at 941-284-2426.
